Bound years of the Kuokoa for sale, 1865.

nupepa

BOUND KUOKOA.

THREE BOOKS—VOLUMES 1, 2 AND 3.

Ten Dollars

is the price for the three books. For one book is $3.50. Inquire at the Book store of H. M. WHITNEY [H. M. WINI].

Hopefully funding can be found to have these newspapers unbound by an expert so the pages can be photographed clearly!]
