[merged small][ocr errors]

OF

THE NATIVES

OF THE

TONGA ISLANDS,

IN THE

SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN,

COMPILED AND ARRANGED FROM THE EXTENSIVE COMMUNICATIONS OF

MR. WILLIAM MARINER,

SEVERAL YEARS RESIDENT IN THOSE ISLANDS.

BY JOHN MARTIN, M. D.

45

* The savages of America inspire less interest .... Since celebrated navigators have made known
to us the inhabitants of the islands of the South Sea .... The state of half-civilization in which
those islanders are found gives a peculiar charm to the description of their manners .... Such
* pictures, no doubt, have more attraction than those which pourtray the solemn gravity of the
inhabitants of the banks of the Missouri or the Maranon."

Preface to Humboldt's Personal Narrative.

FIRST AMERICAN EDITICN.

BOSTON:

CHARLES EWER, No. 51, CORNHILL,

1820.

Elisha Bellamy, Printer.
