    Haddon & Hornell

    (This is the combined volume of all Three Titles.)

    In the early twentieth century, two pioneers of Pacific ethnography, A. C. (Alfred Cort) Haddon and James Hornell, realized the importance of compiling everything that could still be learned about the remarkable canoes of the Pacific.
    Canoes of Oceania has long been regarded as an encyclopedic source of information for scholars interested in the materials, techniques, forms, and functions of ocean-going vessels throughout the Pacific.

    These volumes are filled with numerous illustrations from early European explorers, detailed drawings of canoe parts, and photographs of museum collections throughout the world,
