TitlePhotographs of the Utakwa Expedition in Dutch New Guinea
DescriptionAn album of ninety eight annotated photographs by C.B. Kloss. The album illustrates a trip to Utakwa (Dutch New Guinea) undertaken by Kloss and A.F.R. Wollaston and contains a letter from Wollaston to Ridley, dated 27 Oct 1913, presenting the album to Ridley in recognition of ‘the help you gave to my New Guinea expedition’. The photographs show mainly the various landscapes observed with vegetation at different mountainous altitudes, as well as the base camp of the expedition and other camps set up along the river, indigenous people (Dyak tribe, coastal Papuans and mountain ‘natives’), axes, drums and other apparels used by the tribes, their housing and other constructions, Kloss, Wollaston and Lieut. A Van de Water. At the back of the album is a printed abstract of Ridley’s talk to the Linnean Society about the expedition, 7 May 1914, and a further ten annotated photographs by Kloss.
