Beretning om Corvetten Galathea's Reise omkring Jorden 1845, 46 og 47 [3 volumes]
The Galathea expedition was Denmark's first circumnavigation, carrying naturalists and artists who collected plants, animals, and ethnographic artifacts along a route that included India, the Nicobar Islands, Java, China, Hawaii, and several parts of South America. This official account by the captain, Steen Bille (1797-1883), held by fewer than 10 libraries in the U.S., is of particular interest to curators who work on Hawaiian material in the National Museum of Natural History's departments of Botany, Vertebrate Zoology, and Anthropology.
