Abstract

Twelve printed Maori language items are unique to the Hocken Library. This is one, a work that contains four catechisms: I-II - two composed by Rev. William Yate at Kerikeri; III - a translation of Isaac Watts's 'principles of religion' and 'scriptural names' (with questions from the Old and New Testaments); and IV - the Church Catechism, first printed in 1830 as Ko te Katekihama III. William Colenso noted its rarity on a preliminary page: 'Interleaved by me, for use in visiting, and in schools - perhaps the only copy existing! - always for 60 years, very scarce.'
