delivering a image of a misplaced time, this list makes use of the Victorian library on Brancepeth Station within the Wairarapa, its employees, and its buyers to mirror upon the importance of books, interpreting, and highbrow lifestyles in colonial New Zealand. The station files, library information, and the books themselves—based on borrowing histories, actual stipulations, and marginalia—offer a compelling interpretation of the social and cultural implications of interpreting at the moment. reading characters equivalent to the Beetham relations, Wairarapa Maori, and particularly librarian John Vaughn Miller, this exciting account exemplifies the category cleavages, social anxieties, and uncertainties that have been on the center of either Brancepeth and well known Victorian fiction.
