It was sent to the government of Fiji for publication. Shortly after due to WWII and paper shortages, the ms. was set aside. It was in 1954 that the whole process was picked up again by the Government of Fiji. The ms. was sent to New Zealand where it was typeset; it was eventually published in 1959. The author was at an advanced age by the time this happened but Fowler was able to proofread the typeset version correcting any errors before publication. This volume is from the research library of ichthyologist Wayne N. Witzell with his circular blind stamp in the frontispiece and on the title page. There is also an old oval stamp of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Fisheries Division on the title page and contents page; there are no ownership marks or external markings. A bright and clean copy in near fine condition. Seller Inventory # 7737
