A study of cultures

Fine copy of a scarce anthropological study carried out by French maritime medical officer Cauvin, during his visit to Australia and New Guinea in the early 1880s. Cauvin's work followed that of Labillardiére in 1800, Huxley in 1870 and Topinard in 1872, in the study of cultural and physical attributes of the Tasmanian and mainland Aborigines, the Papuans and the Polynesians, in an attempt to determine their origins.
