Description
The Hawaiian Language Reprint Series was established by the Hawaiian Historical Society to make available to students and scholars books that were printed in the Hawaiian language during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Most have long been out of print, and access to surviving editions is generally limited to libraries and private collections. We hope that making these texts accessible will foster the use and appreciation of the Hawaiian language, encourage the building of personal libraries, and raise awareness of the authors and the times in which they wrote. The title of this series, Ke Kupu Hou, offers a sense of renewed growth. The phrase could be translated many ways, including: a new genesis, a reemergence, or a fresh, new leaf. The texts chosen for reprinting embody each of these images. The objective of the Hawaiian Historical Society, founded in 1892, is to advance our knowledge and understanding of the history of Hawai'i and the Pacific Islands. To this end, the Society maintains a research library of historical documents and publications; prormotes the discovery, collection, and preservation of historical materials; publishes scholarly articles and books focusing on history; and sponsors public programs addressing historical topics.These purposes are not limited to particular time periods, geographic areas, or ethnic groups within Hawai'i or the Pacific. Membership is open to all interested in the Society's mission.
