Listing Detail Tabs

The book of the Huia, by W.J.Phillipps, hard covered book of 159 pages. Printed in 1963, the contents of the book are in real nice condition. The dust jacket has some light stains at the bottom of the dust jacket font (see last pic) and also some at the bottom of the first and last blank page in the book. A small tear on the front dust jacket at the edge of the spine opposite the head of the top Huia on the cover.
The beautiful forest dwelling Huia, presumed to be extinct for something like 100+ years, still holds its place in the minds and affections of New Zealanders. To the Maori, it was a tapu bird, sacred above all other denizens of the forest, a royal bird, and only Chiefs of distinction could properly wear its remarkable, white tipped tail feathers. The book covers information on the Huia, a section on the Maori and the Huia, reasons for its demise and a section on where the author thinks it is possible that someone will rediscover the Huia in the North Island in the future.
