"The Coming of the Maori embodies the life-long research, study, considered opinions and conclusions of the greatest authority not only upon the Maori people and their history, traditions, customs, culture, social organization, and economic life, but on the whole of Polynesia and the Polynesians." (from the Foreword, by Rt. Hon. P. Fraser). The author begins with a history of New Zealand from its mythical origins up through the third settlement period, which witnessed the Hawaiki migration. This is followed by separate chapters on every aspect of Maori history and culture, including Speech, Food, Houses, Clothing, Stone Tools, Canoes, Games and Pastimes, Maori Art, Personal Decoration and Ornaments, Social Organization, Religion, and more.

Hardback book with dust jacket (a couple of small tears in the top, slight sun fading on the spine), excellent condition inside. Published in 1977, 548 pages, indexed and illustrated, and with 24 full-page plates at rear. Name on endpaper.
