Katherine Mansfield was a prominent New Zealand modernist writer of short fiction.The Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society is a voluntary organisation responsible for preserving the author's former home and its contents in Thorndon, Wellington. In The Material Mansfield Mansfield's remaining possessions are recorded in a book for the first time and teamed up with comments made about them by Mansfield and others.

They reveal another facet of this enigmatic New Zealander: poignant evidence of her home thoughts from abroad; of her individual sense of style; of things she enjoyed and in which she found succour. The chapter called Style has her shawls, cloaks, a bed jacket, fans, and even a lock of her hair. The chapter called Sentiment has a fairy purse, an embroidered linen bookcover, a hussif doll, and a brass pig penwiper. A fascinating and beautifully presented book, illustrated with many colour photographs. This book is beautifully produced and is a wonderful historical record and a gift for historians and Katherine Mansfield fans alike.
