Most widely held works by Donald Kerr
Amassing treasures for all times : Sir George Grey, colonial bookman and collector by Donald Kerr( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir George Grey, governor of New Zealand, South Australia and the Cape Colony, was an outstanding British colonial statesman in the nineteenth century. Less well-known of Grey is that he was also an obsessive collector of rare books and artefacts, which he selflessly bequeathed to the people he governed. This study, written by a former librarian of the Auckland Grey Collection, sheds desperately needed light on the genius and magnanimity of an increasingly controversial figure, demonstrating the complex humanity underlying his apparent remoteness. It is the first study on Grey of its kind

Hocken : prince of collectors by Donald Kerr( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr Thomas Morland Hocken (1836-1910) arrived in Dunedin in 1862, aged 26. Throughout his busy life as a medical practitioner he amassed books, manuscripts, sketches, maps and photographs of early New Zealand. Much of his initial collecting focused on the early discovery narratives of James Cook; along with the writings of Rev. Samuel Marsden and his contemporaries; Edward Gibbon Wakefield and the New Zealand Company; and Maori, especially in the south. He gifted his collection to the University of Otago in 1910. Hocken was a contemporary of New Zealand's other two notable early book collectors, Sir George Grey and Alexander Turnbull. In this ... a companion volume to his Amassing Treasures for All Times: Sir George Grey, colonial bookman and collector, Donald Kerr examines Hocken's collecting activities and his vital contribution to preserving the history of New Zealand's early post-contact period"--Jacket flap
The smell of powder : a history of duelling in New Zealand by Donald Kerr( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not so long ago New Zealanders were sorting out their feuds with duels. The last one recorded was in 1935 in Auckland. These duels were fought because of too much wine; quarrels over money; casting a slur over another's character; defending a young lady's honour; throwing an orange at someone's head; and there was even a literary duel between a poet and a newspaper editor
