Summary
The Papalagi is a collection of speeches written by the South Pacific chief Tuiavii of Tiavea and intented for his people. They first appeared in a German edition some time in the early 1920s, in a translation by his friend Erich Scheurmann, who arranged for a Dutch-language publication through publishing house De Voortganck in 1929. While preparing this publication, the Dutch text of the 1929 edition was closely followed, in spite of the shortcomings, both in spelling and style
