Notes

First and only edition of this delightful and scarce book of Hawaiian nursery rhymes; WorldCat only lists three institutional holdings, all in the US, only one of which in Hawaii.
The author appears to have been a relative of Johnny Noble (1892-1944), Hawaiian big band leader and co-author of the 1933 hapa hoale-style hit song "My Little Grass Shack in Kealakekuka, Hawaii".
