Books in Maori 1815-1900 : An Annotated Bibliography/Nga Tanga Reo Maori
Books in Maori records all known printed Maori language publications up to the year 1900, with detailed annotations explaining the content of each and their historical context. Over 1600 publications are described, nearly 400 for the first time, arranged in chronological order, and with details where copies are located. Background information from archival sources also adds to the record of New Zealand printing history. As the reference work on 19th century Maori publishing it will be invaluable to students and collectors, as well as for libraries, museums and archives, and is expected to encourage further research into the development of the Maori language.
