Hawaiian version of “Beauty and the Beast,” 1893.

HE KAAO WALOHIA
—:NO:—
KANANI!
—:A ME:—
Ka Hapa Gorila.

“The Heart-Wrenching Tale of Beauty and the Half Gorilla” ran in Hawaii Holomua from 4/10/1893 and concluded on 5/26/1893. There is no attributed translator. I am not sure what work it was translated from.

[Much earlier in 1862, Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont’s “Beauty and the Beast” was translated as “He Kaao no Kanani! me ka Holoholona,” by J. W. Click here for my earlier post.]

(Hawaii Holomua, 4/10/1893, p. 1)
