An account of the Pelew Islands by George Keate( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1783 an East India Company packet, the Antelope, was wrecked on the Pelew Islands (in modern Micronesia). Captain Henry Wilson and his crew developed unusually amicable relations with the Palauan inhabitants and participated in expeditions against their enemies. After a stay of just over three months, they departed in a new vessel they had built, taking the 'prince' Lee Boo with them to Britain. Lee Boo was a figure of fashionable interest in London, at once highly regarded for his intelligence, yet treated also as an exotic curiosity. His death from smallpox in 1784 occasioned wide regretful comment. An Account of the Pelew Islands, which relates these events, was written by George Keate, a professional author, and is based on extensive interviews with Captain Wilson, Lee Boo and other participants. Its dramatic and well-written narrative made it one of the most popular late-eighteenth-century travel books and it was rapidly translated into several European languages and republished in five London editions up to 1803." "This new edition of the work reproduces the text of the fifth edition, noting the changes from earlier editions. It includes introductory essays on the significance of the text or late-eighteenth-century European culture and on the Micronesian dimensions of the voyage and the book. Annotations explain and contextualize points of historical and ethnographic significance and the original fine engraved portraits, views, artifacts and charts are included, as well as previously unpublished plates and clear new maps."--BOOK JACKET
Yapese : OR22( )

in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 26 documents concerns the Yapese, who speak an Eastern Malayo-Polynesian language and occupy the westernmost of the Caroline Islands in Micronesia. The earliest documents in the collection, translated from German, were published between 1873 and 1917 and cover the time period of 1865 to 1910. The accounts are by explorers, government officials, missionaries, natural scientists, and travelers. There is one Spanish source and a German translation of Russian explorer's diary. Topics include religion, geography, music, poetry, dance, funerals, and money. Documents from the American period and onwards, starting in 1947, include a general ethnography, politics, courtship and marriage, dispute settlement, food, and post-colonial changes. Yap was under Spanish control from 1871 to 1899, German control from 1899 to 1914, Japanese control from 1914 to 1945, and American control from 1945 to 1985, after which it became part of an independent state (Yap State) in the Federated States of Micronesia
Marshallese : OR11( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Marshallese collection consists of 15 documents, covering a wide variety of cultural and historical information, circa 1900 to 2005. The earliest descriptions of Marshallese culture and society in the collection are translations from the German originally compiled by a colonial official, two ethnologists, and a missionary. Together, these three documents provide detailed geographic and ethnographic information as observed in 1900-1909. Two documents in the collection are first-hand accounts of Marshallese village life and economic situation as observed in 1946-1947. One of these was a commissioned research by the U.S. government company which sought background cultural and economic information for planning future economic development for the Marshall Islands. The other was authored by Alexander Spoehr, a former U.S. Navy who returned to the Majuro in 1947 as a civilian to conduct ethnological work. In this work, Spoehr contrasts changes in Marshallese culture he observed with his own earlier observations while on active duty with the Navy during World War II. L.M. Carucci conducted extensive fieldwork among inhabitants of Ujelang/Enewetak Atolls on various occasions in 1976-2005. Topics covered by Carrucci include domestic violence (1990, no. 9), community life and concepts of morality (1998, no. 10), dynamics of grandparent/grandchildren relations, aspects of cosmology (1989, no. 22), and rites of passages. The remaining documents in the collection further enrich information in the above three category of works with additional themes and in-depth analyses including land tenure and inheritance rules, gender and family life, internal political dynamics and international relations, and contemporary development issues
