LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Fiji Museum, Suva - reprint (Facsimile of William Heath, Boston - 1851), 1986. Softcover, 8" x 5¾. Book in VERY GOOD condition. This is a facsimile reproduction of the 1851 original, with glossary of 'Feejeean Terms', with fold-out 9¾" x 12" map (Chart of the Fiji Islands, undated) at rear, with errata. The 'Lady' author visted Fiji on two occasions, recording her experiences, impressions and anecdotes for her own amusement; subsequently however, the Lady wrote "those whose opinions I respect at home, and the missionaries at the Feejee Islands, with whom I had the happiness of becoming acquainted, advised me to offer my journal to the public, as it contained many facts never before published". Our mysterious 'Lady', Mary Davis Wallis, was married to a forceful Yankee captain of the bark "Zotoff" from Salem, Massachusetts, who dominated the lucrative beche-de-mer trade in Fiji-Manila. Captain Wallis took his piously eccentric wife voyaging to the Fiji's from 1844 - 1849. This is her lively, decidedly feminist, opinionated and humorous account of those five years.
