3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The typescript is not dated but it is thought to have been written after Collocott left Tonga, possibly between 1921 and 1930. The manuscript is a history of Tonga centred around King Taufa'ahu (George Tupou I) and his family. It contains stories of creation, myths, legends, songs, and family histories and, as the chapter headings denote, the more recent history and personalities associated with the coming of the Europeans (Cook, Bligh, Edwards, Moulton, the London Missionary Society etc.). A number of published works are named as reference sources. The manuscript appears to contain twenty-six chapters but from Chapter 13 onwards the arrangement is very confused. The detailed list of contents, at the beginning of the microfilm, also indicates the position of some additional pages in Collocott's handwriting. Annotations have been made at some time by an unknown researcher
