Abstract
The paper presents, for the first time, various photographs of Rapanui Manuscript E, discovered in the Archives of the Kon-Tiki Museum in the correspondence between Thor Heyerdahl and Max Puelma Bunster. Despite some of these images being out of focus, they show that the manuscript does not always follow the pagination known from Barthel’s 1978 book “The Eighth Land: The Polynesian Discovery and Settlement of Easter Island.” One of the pages does not appear at all in Barthel’s transcription. Two pages with clearly distinguishable rongorongo signs can be extremely important for the future studies of Rapanui script.
