to the second edition

to the second edition

Shortly after the first edition came from the presses I received the article by dr W.G. Coppell “About the Cook Islands. Their Nomenclature and a Systematic Statement of Early European Contacts (see: Bibliography no. 505). I am indebted to dr Coppell for his permission to include his findings into this edition.

Special thank goes this time to my beloved wife who undertook the difficult task of retyping the manuscript with much patience and care.

From a village near the outskirts of Amsterdam my wife and I send our aroa to all in the Cook Islands.
