From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 25 June 2019

Rare pieces of New Zealand's history will go up for auction next week - including a copy of the country's first newspaper and a declaration of the crown's soverignty. It's all part of Aucklander Christopher Parr's extensive private collection - a collection he can no longer enjoy because of his dementia. So it's being auctioned-off to people who can appreciate it. Rare book consultant and auctioneer at Art & Object, Pam Plumbly talks to Susie Ferguson.
