Correspondence and diary by R. H Rickard( Book )
in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Some of the documents in this collection relate only indirectly to the Rev. R.H. Rickard. The documents comprise: 1. A copy of a letter dated May 1, 1882, from Rickard to the Wesleyan Church offering his services as a missionary in New Britain. 2. A fragment of a diary kept by Rickard's wife in the Duke of York Islands from May 19, 1883, to Sept 24, 1883. 3. Four letters from C. Phebe Parkinson to Mrs Rickard, written between 1898 and 1939 from various places in the New Guinea Islands. One of the letters, of 1935, was written from the little-known Tingwon Islands, off the western tip of New Hanover, and is one of the fullest descriptions known of those islands. (C. Phebe Parkinson became a friend of the Rickards during their early years in New Britain. For an outline of her career, see Pambu for November, 1968)
A Rarotongan-English dictionary by G. H Eastman( Book )
4 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Eastman says in an introduction to the dictionary that the words were collected "partly as a means of obtaining a fluent use of the native language, and partly as a hobby." On his transfer to the Gilbert Islands, he decided, at the request of European and Cook Islands friends, to publish his collection "as far as completed". The dictionary, compiled in 1918 did not pretend to be a complete collection of all Cook Islands words, but most words of the Rarotongan language in ordinary use and many words of other Cook Islands dialects were included. It had been intended to publish the dictionary in New Zealand but because of a shortage of labour and material in 1918 this project was not carried out. Eastman said in a letter to the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau in 1973 that his work had formed the basis of Stephen Savage's A dictionary of the Maori language of Rarotonga, published by the Department of Island Territories, Wellington, in 1962
