Maori Lore

The Traditions of the Maori People, with the more Important of their Legends.

James Izett,

It has not always been recognised that the History of the Maori and the Legends of the Maori are quite different things; the legends and traditions fill this volume.

Illustrated with b/w photographs. “From the voluminous stock of Maori pictures in the possession of Mr. Arthur Isles, photographer, of Rotorua, the portraits of Maori chiefs and maidens have been selected. The other illustrations furnished have been kindly supplied through the courtesy of Mr. John Mackay, Government Printer.”

Condition: Good, Signature and ink marks on front fly leaf, Nelson College Library tag on front fly leaf, red stain on some leading edges and plastic dust cover taped to book. First photograph has 1cm tear upper left edge.

Compiled for the government of New Zealand by James Izett.
