The Golden Quair of Quotations
There is no publication date given but I suspect it was published between 1930-35 as the first quotes are attributed to His Excellency The Right Honourable Lord Bledisloe, Governor General of New Zealand from 1930-1935, and his wife Her Excellency Lady Bledisloe.
The following text appears opposite the title page:
These quotations were gathered by a Special Committee of the Auckland Branch of the International Federation of University Women. The cover was arranged by A.J.C.Fisher. The proceeds accruing from the sale of "Golden Quair" are in aid of the establishment of a Research Scholarship Fund for Women Graduates.
For all sins, whether of omission or commission, we beg in advance the indulgence of readers and the forgiveness of contributors.
Can anyone out there throw any more light on the provenance or background of this little gem?
By the way I looked up quair in my dictionary and find it is Scots for book.
