"A more general work on the natural sciences than its Hawaiian title would suggest to the modern reader. Hoke Akua is an abridged translation of Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet's Youth's book on natural theology (Hartford, 1832+). It was a popular work in New England schools and had many American editions." Unlike later editions, this one was primarily for use at Lahainaluna Seminary, and the plates were printed from copper plates engraved at the school, whereas the plates in the 2nd ed. were printed from stereotype cuts from Boston. The plates are also inserted at the end of the text. "The fourth plate (numbered fig. "8" at top) has hand formations representing the 26 letters of the alphabet, a system developed by Gallaudet ..., a famous American educator, to enable the user to communicate with deaf persons ... This work was published with funds from the American Tract Society"--Forbes, David W. Hawaiian national bibliography

Thomas H. Gallaudet (1787-1851) was the Apostle to the Deaf in the United States. He devoted his life to teach the underprivileged the truths of God's Word. He wrote dozens and dozens of books using simple, straightforward language for children, young people and adults. This is considered the most remarkable book written by this extraordinary man. Henry Barnard, the distinguished promoter of public education, said the following about the book "The Child's Book on the Soul:" 'This book exhibits Mr. Gallaudet's remarkable tact in bringing the most abstract subject within the grasp of the feeblest and youngest mind.' - Publisher
