Octavo, orange cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 491 pp. Fine (As New) in a Very Good dust jacket with sunned spine & lightly rubbed edges. From jacket: The majestic sweep of Maori tradition moves through the pages of this book; here, for the first time, is a full collection of the myths, legends, and religious beliefs of the New Zealand Maori. Maori folklore and legend has its own peculiar quality, being closely allied to nature in all its manifestations, and with a depth of thought and of religious feeling which is an important part of the Maori life. No other book has attempted to make such a wide collection, to show the variations in well-known legends amonst different tribes, and to gather lesser-known stories within the covers of one volume.
