Constable and Co., Edinburgh; Hearst, Chance and Co., London, 1827. John Martin, from correspondence with William Mariner. Two volumes. Hardback, cloth and board bound. Condition: VERY GOOD. Flawless cloth and board covers, inside pages clean and bright with some water damage on titlepage and light foxing on a few other pages. Foldout map in Vol 1 in excellent condition. --- "William Mariner (17911853) was an Englishman who lived in the Tonga Islands from 1806 to 1810. He wrote an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on pre-Christian Tonga. There are three major versions of Mariner's account. The original version was first published in 1817 by John Murray II, with the help of Dr. John Martin, who assumed authorship. Later editions appeared in England in 1818 and 1827 and in Germany in 1819 and the United States in 1820. The Vava'u Press of Tonga issued a new edition in 1981 that includes a biographical essay about Mariner, written by Denis Joroyal McCulloch, one of Mariner's great-great grandsons, but leaves out the grammar and dictionary.
