Buka Passage Rare Book

Buka (in Papua New Guinea, part of the Solomon Islands) is a famous place in anthropological literature.  This book of research by Beatrice Blackwood represents the first field study of the people there.  Beatrice Blackwood was a noted anthropologist at Oxford University.  Her study was conducted well before World War II.

A copy of her book, Both Sides of Buka Passage, has been donated for our book sale.
