20cm x 14cm. xv, 175 pages, black and white photographs. Grey cloth, black lettering, no jacket. Dr William Gunn and his wife lived on the Isle of Futuna from 1883-1917 as Presbetaryian missionaries. Futuna has been described as the ‘Gateway’ to the gospel in Vanuatu, the first in this group of islands where inhabitants accepted the gospel of Jesus Christ. The book is structured as a series of character portraits, men and women of different ages, and their gradual conversion to Christian faith and lifestyle. “Their failures have not been concealed, in order that their portraits may be true to life”. The stories are richly embedded with ethnological information on manners, customs, and beliefs of the native people prior to colonisation. Very minor mottling to cloth. Foxing to edges. Previous owner's name inkstamped to title page. Shipped Weight: .43 kilos.
