Grantham House of Wellington (established 1985) publishes a wide range of books on New Zealand subjects as varied as a life of a clairvoyant to rugby trivia. Titles have included the language of alcohol, antique furniture, art, architecture, early Colonial Toys, the Colonial New Zealand Wars, two volumes by New Zealand’s famous story teller Jim Henderson, New Zealand birds, cricket, rugby, food, crime and policing. A series of books on New Zealand tragedies: aviation, earthquakes, fires, railways and shipwrecks.
New Zealand pictorial histories have been our hallmark. A series on the motorcar in New Zealand, ranging from motorcycles, the small cars of yesterday, the big saloons, saloon motor racing, tractors, Utes, to the mighty trucks on today. Other pictorial volumes include best selling titles Auckland Before the Harbour Bridge and New Zealand – Portrait of a Nation.
We have specialised in New Zealand’s colourful transportation past: railways, tramways, motor buses, the Royal New Zealand Navy, merchant shipping, harbour ferries, the Royal New Zealand Air Force, civil aviation and pioneer aviators.
Grantham House books are created and designed with the written and visual content nicely balanced for the reader. The publishing house is acknowledged in the book world as an imprint that produces fine books with quality content. The majority have become works of reference, essential for researchers and for home reference libraries.
