Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Before you get to the book, please look at the author's name, Gwenda.
I like it, and had to look it up. It sounds ancient but it's not, it's modern.

Gwenda is a feminine given name of Welsh origin. It was apparently coined in the 20th century using the Welsh adjectives gwen "white, fair, blessed" and da "good", and may also be a variant of Gwendolen or a feminine form of Gwyndaf, a Welsh saint. The name was "regularly used until the 1960s, now rare."

New Zealand, 1981, 1st edition. 112 pp, sepia photo illustrations and 67 drawings by author. Tall Hardcover, Dust Jacket. Fine condition.

This is a tall hardcover book. Extra postage may be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

Sixty-seven drawings by the author, together with over ninety photographs, many of which have never before been published, make up this attractive book. Written at a time when the city's buildings were under threat from demolition by rapacious developers the authors love of the old buildings of Christchurch and her drawings of them have acquired extra importance and charm since the 2011 earthquake accounted for most of the buildings she depicts.
