Antique 1913 Photograph Album, Tahiti, New Guinea, Natives, Villages

























































...... This rare photograph album of South Seas photographs was the personal copy of the Carnegie Institute President, Robert S. Woodward and is signed by Doctor Alfred S. Mayer. I suspect this album is unique and the exceptional original photographs are certainly very rare.  On the first page of this 7 ½” by 11” photograph album is a hand written list of the photographs signed by Alfred G. Mayer. In 1913-14, Dr. Mayer led an exhibition to the South Seas representing the Department of Marine Biology at the Carnegie Institute in Washington. The yearlong exhibition traveled to New Guinea, Tahiti and the Straits of Tares. This photograph album from the exhibition was a personal gift to the President of the Carnegie Institute, Robert S. Woodward who was president between 1905 and 1920. There is a list for 25 exceptional 5x7 photographs each with a title. These photos depict different landscapes as well as photos of natives from the Boira and the Barahaw villages on New Guinea. There also are photographs of Eineo Island taken from Tahiti and other very interesting photographs. The first 24 photographs are present and in excellent crisp condition. The 25th photograph, which depicted "summit on Eineo Island," is missing. The first 24 photograph are in perfect condition and the album is strong with no loose pages.
