About this Item

Single printed sheet. Very good. A very unusual imprint. This sheet was printed by the first mission press in the Islands, evidently for the use of students on the Gilbert Islands, far to the east. Ponape is an island in the central Carolines, south of Guam and due east of the southern Philippines. A press was established there in the 1850s, but it was not until 1863 that one was set up in the Gilberts. Hence this item was printed in Ponape and shipped. E.F. Kunz, ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF LANGUAGES OF THE GILBERT ISLANDS (Sydney, 1959). Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 6687
