The Oldman Collection of Maori Artifacts

Author(s): W. O. Oldman

Maori & Pacific

During the later half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century in England, several private collections of ethnographic artifacts were assembled from the pool of "artificial curiosities" and souvenirs. Among these private collections, that of William Oldman was recognized as a comprehensive one, especially for its Pacific component.
