Materials related to Ergebnisse der Südsee-Expedition 1908-1910 (Results of the South Pacific-Expedition 1908-1910)

Südsee Expedition was proposed by Georg Thilenius and funded by the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung (Hamburg Scientific Foundation). It was a two year expedition to study and describe German Melanesia, the Caroline and Marshall Islands in Micronesia. Due to the variety of researchers and authors, the types of information collected and the organization and depth of description varies from volume to volume. This series is a very rich source of information about the geography, geology, society, religion, music, legends, and language of these islands. The Pacific Collection at Hamilton Library holds the original German-language publications of the Südsee Expedition, as well as numerous translations (some published, and some in manuscript form) and other related works. This online collection is a sampling of these materials and not an exhaustive gathering of all relevant materials. It will be added to over time, as funding and staffing permits.
