Our First New Zealand Legacy Library

We’re very pleased to announce the first New Zealand-based Legacy Library, that of Pei te Hurinui Jones (1898-1976). Jones joins Alfred Deakin (the second Prime Minister of Australia) in our Antipodean Legacies collection. Mr. Jones was a leading Māori scholar and translator (he’s known for translating three volumes of Māori chants and song-poetry into English, and three Shakespeare plays into Māori). You can read a more complete biographical sketch on his profile page. This catalog is thanks to the efforts of David Friggens, Systems Librarian at the University of Waikato, which holds the book collection. LibraryThing Catalog your books online.
