1859 1st Description of FIJI / Australian Oceania Ethnography Map Plates Very Rare / Beautifully ILLUSTRATED comp@$600 ‘One of the outstanding works on Fiji. Reverend Thomas Williams, of Adelaide, Australia, lived as a Wesleyan missionary in Fiji for thirteen years. Reverend James Calvert, considered the ‘father’ of the Fiji missions, worked there for seventeen years. The preface to the first volume gives a few guidelines to the pronunciation of the Fijian language. The book contains information on the origins of the natives, their warlike tendencies, industrial produce, manners, customs, religion, and language. The enormity of the task attempted and accomplished in Fiji is a tribute to the persistent endeavors of the various missionary societies at work in the South Seas’ (Hill 1885). - I find this very rare title for sale elsewhere at $600 Author: Thomas Williams; James Calvert; George Stringer Rowe Title: Fiji and the Fijians Published: New York : D.
