Alexander Wyclif (A.W.) Reed wrote over 200 books, mostly on aspects of Maori culture. His scholarship reached its peak with the Treasury of Maori Folklore (1963; revised edition 2004), the Treasury of Maori Exploration (1977; revised edition 2006) and the Reed Dictionary of New Zealand Place Names (1975; revised edition 2002). He was the nephew of A.H. Reed, who established a family bookselling company in Dunedin in 1907 which went on to become an icon of New Zealand publishing. Ross Calman (Ngati Raukawa, Ngati Toa, Kai Tahu) is the co-author of three Maori language dictionaries and author of a book for children, The Treaty of Waitangi (2003). He had edited and translated many publications.
