Format: Paperback
This book is a treasure. "Place Names of Hawaii" is an exceptional and important reference book for anyone who is interested in the Hawaiian language or anyone who just wants to know the meaning behind the names of streets, towns, valleys, land sections, fish ponds, craters, mountains, streams, islands, churches, buildings, et cetera. Every entry has an English translation of the Hawaiian name (when possible) as well as background information. It is invaluable reference book for any Hawaiian language student, but "Place Names" should also be in the library or book collection of everyone who lives in Hawai'i that has a library or book collection.

Place Names of Hawaii, and Supplement to the Third Edition of the Hawaiian-English Dictionary. was the 1966 first edition, it had about 1,125 entries and was described as a "Supplement to the Third Edition of the Hawaiian-English Dictionary. The Hawaiian Dictionary: Hawaiian-English, English-Hawaiian is perhaps the most important reference book on the Hawaiian language and "Place Names" is a product of the same team of Pukui/Elbert. This is the "revised and expanded edition" with about 4,000 entries. It should also be considered a supplement to the UH Hawaiian Dictionary, although it is also a stand alone reference and can be used and enjoyed all by itself.

The revised and expanded edition of "Place Names" has been available for more than 30 years. I can not understand how it is that I am the first to write a review for Amazon; considering how important this book is to Hawaii and its language.

Format: Paperback
This is the first edition of "Place Names of Hawaii", a very important Hawaiian reference book. I recommend the "revised and expanded edition" of Place Names of Hawaii because it contains about 4,000 entries, while this first edition contains only 1,125 entries (28% of the latest edition). I gave the first edition 5 stars, so that it would receive its proper recognition and respect; however, unless you are a book collector into acquiring first editions, you should probably get the "revised and expanded edition" of Place Names of Hawaii. Please read my review for Place Names of Hawaii, the "revised and expanded edition."
