‘Samples of Polynesian Cloth from the South Seas Islands Once Owned by Captain Cook’
Godward Collection, Hocken Collections
One of the curiosities taken back to England by Cook was a collection of tapa cloth specimens, which eventually became collectible. These strongly associated Cook items are from Bruce Godward’s extensive book collection that was given to the Hocken Library in 1991.
