Author(s): Andrew Sharp

Pacific Islands | Secondhand

In this book, the authors purpose is to establish the true title to the discovery of the various islands of Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia by abstracting from the original records and the relevent topographical, nautical and other clues and comparing them with modern data. He also gives summaries of the ethnological observations of the discoveres, made before the island cultures were altered by European contact. This book thus makes a notable contribution to the history, geography, and ethology of the Pacific.
