journal contributionposted on 2017-12-06, 00:00 authored by Stephen MullinsStephen Mullins
Andrew Goldie arrived in New Guinea in March 1876 to hunt plants for the London nurseryman B.S. Williams and is recognised as perhaps the most important early commercial collector of New Guinea natural history specimens and ethnology. He published some newspaper reports of his travels and left an unpublished memoir of his 1876-1879 years. This chapter explains the significance of the memoir and briefly describes the process that brought it to publication.
