This, the first catalogue issued by the Fiji Museum, records the 611 ethnographic artefacts exhibited at the museum in 1916. Intended "solely for the use of tourists", "it is to be regretted that want of funds prevents the catalogue from being illustrated" - not surprising as the annual grant was £25.
