He Buke Mele Lahui.
The Editor gifted a copy of the Buke Mele Lahui, Volume 1 to this Office, and we glanced through its pages. It is a book of 112 pages aside from the advertisements, table of contents and introduction by Mr. F (riend) Joseph Testa (Hoke). There are approximately 240 or more mele within. The first mele is Ai Pohaku and the last is Ai-manu Koolau. This is a good book for the Hawaiian libraries of those who like to keep books. The price is 25 cents.
[This publication was reprinted by the Hawaiian Historical Society in 2003, and is available in hardback for $60, or if you are a member of the Historical Society, $48! Check out the many books available from the Historical Society here.]
