"As a Maori, albeit a degenerate and much-contaminated, I have to acknowledge my appreciation of the conscientious, painstaking and interesting effort of the author to re-construct for us the scenes of the past." - from the Foreword by A. T. Ngata. Johannes Andersen was the librarian of the Alexander Turnbull Library, the author of several titles on the Maori of New Zealand, a local historian, a collector of New Zealand books, and author of the first book on the subject of collecting New Zealand books, "The Lure of New Zealand Book Collecting" (1936). "Though indeed ancestors may appear in the shapes of creeping things, their commoner manifestation is in the kehua, dreading the light of fires and day, and coming to the wairua, or dream-spirit, of man at night. The kehua wanders among accustomed earthly places since it has been unable, through omitted ceremonies, to enter 'Reinga'. It must then be enabled to leave the world, or it will become a malignant spirit, afflicting its kindred who are still living." - page 449. [Bibliographical Reference: Bagnall A449]. ; 8vo; Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 12145
