NotesFirst 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".
Oblong folio. Publisher's orange paper-covered boards with colour illustrated labels to each, bound with two clear-plastic screws, titles in brown to front board label, colour pictorial endpapers.
Each page with colourful crayon borders surrounding a sepia illustration by Lyn McKinney, title page printed in purple, and text in brown.
Slight wear to extremities, a little darkened, otherwise clean and without ownership marks. A near-fine copy.
