Comments:
The definitive work on Hawaiian material culture. Peter H. Buck, director of Bishop Museum from 1936 until his death in 1951, divided Hawaiian material culture into 13 major groupings, now reprinted in 13 separate publications plus an index to the complete set. Meticulous and detailed, his descriptions of traditional objects include methods of construction and use. His painstaking accounts are, in many cases, specific enough to allow modern artisans to recreate these works. 1. Food. 0-910240-34-5, 1964, 83 pp., $8.95(P) 2.
