Narrative of the Adventures and Sufferings of Samuel Patterson experienced in the Pacific Ocean with an Account of the Feegee and Sandwich Islands [Hawaii]
Palmer, Mass: From the Press in Palmer, 1817. 144p. a very good copy with a chip out of margin on p. 61-62 not affecting the text. An important early account of Hawaii. Samuel Patterton visited Hawaii in 1805 and again in 1807 where he observed and writes of their religion, government, marriage customs, awa root and sugar cane and many other issues. A later edition omits the bottom of page 70 and the top part of page 71 which some speculate is because of a missionary's disagreement. Here, of course, is the original text unaltered. Caleb Weaver Johnson's copy. Bound in full calf, handsomely rebacked retaining original red morocco spine label gilt, one corner restored. Hawaiian National Bibliography: 1780-1900, Vol. I, #470; Howes P122; Hill 227; Sabin 59145; Shaw and Shoemaker 41734.. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
