This book by Gilbert Archey is a result of his lifelong work of the study of Maori Art in all its forms.
Published by Collins this is a 1977 first edition hardback with many black and white illustrations, a foldout at rear of Maori canoe, and a few coloured illustrations.
The range of subjects covered in this volume is comprehensive - from meeting houses and war canoes to personal ornaments, and including weapons, treasure boxes, burial chests, musical instruments, cloaks - using a variety of materials, from readily workable timbers, flax, bone, and whale ivory to the less tractable greenstone, argillite and basalt.
