Description:
Auckland, 1982 *** ONLY EDITION THUS; COMPRISING SIX FABLES IN SAMOAN PROSE. This edition appeared simultaneously with an edition of the same fables translated into Niuean (another Polynesian language) by Aiao Kaulima (b. 1935) and similarly illustrated by McNee. Aesop's animals, of course, were unknown in Samoa before the eighteenth century; and so many of their names here are transparently European, eg, 'asini 'donkey', rane 'frog', manuki 'monkey', mole 'mole', pusi 'cat', luko 'wolf'. -- Out of print, and already VERY SCARCE. -- Cover title: Tala mai nu'u mamao = Stories from faraway places. -- Reference: OCLC 23008181.. Pictorial wrappers, wire-stitc. 3 volumes (209 x 147 mm): Pp 1-16, 1-16, 1-16. .

Description:
FIRST EDITION (only edition), one of 200 numbered copies, this being no. 77 INSCRIBED AND SIGNED "For Jay Dillon-- Who solved the sine of 4 (and came up with the Seven-per cent solution)-- Josh Pachter" in blue ink on the upper wrapper recto. -- --

The allusion, of course, is to the mathematical sine of four degrees, which is 0.0696 (Pachter's imprint) or seven percent. This alludes in turn to Conan Doyle's "seven-per-cent. solution" in 'The sign of four' 1890 page 3, which begs the question: Did Doyle himself know that seven percent is the sine of four? (And if not, then why not six percent? or eight?) -- --

This is quite a two-pipe problem. -- --

Collation: 280 x 217 mm (11 × 8½ inches): Twenty-four leaves paginated [i-ii] [1] 2-33 [34-46 blank], including the cover-title on gray paper as issued, errata-slip laid in. Binding: Wire-stitched as shown, as issued. Condition: The upper wrapper moderately stained as shown, else very good. -- --
