Mark Pirie privately publishes biography of Tom Lawn

Friday, March 15, 2019 by Mark Pirie

In December 2018, I produced a hardback edition of my biography Tom Lawn, Mystery Forward, for my family and research libraries or museums in New Zealand.

The book took me around six years to research, edit and produce. I hope it contains some information of value to fellow researchers of farm machinery/implements and rugby of the 1920s and 1930s in Auckland and Canterbury.

I see it as mainly a family history project, and haven’t tried to market or sell it commercially.

It was privately published by Earl of Seacliff Art Workshop and included in their non-fiction list.
