Laing Collection

This is a collection of some 400 volumes on botany, both New Zealand and overseas.

The books were bequeathed by R.M. Laing, a former teacher at Christchurch Boy’s High School who died in 1941.

The books are mainly 19th and early 20th century specialist works outside the standard commercial publishers' output, and include many scarce items.

Books may not be borrowed.
