Reverend Thomas Williams, of Adelaide, Australia, lived as a Wesleyan missionary in Fiji for thirteen years. Reverend James Calvert, considered the 'father' of the Fiji missions, worked there for seventeen years. The preface to the first volume gives a few guidelines to the pronunciation of the Fijian language. The book contains information on the origins of the natives, their warlike tendencies, industrial produce, manners, customs, religion, and language. The enormity of the task attempted and accomplished in Fiji is a tribute to the persistent endeavors of the various missionary societies at work in the South Seas' (Hill 1885). - A fine copy.
