Studying Isokichi Komine's New Ireland collection

Updated: Mar 14, 2019

Kosuke Dai of Keio University, Japan, has made a return visit to finish his detailed survey of New Ireland material collected by AB Lewis (via Isokichi Komine.) Dai first visited last year, but finding more material than expected both in collections and Museum archives, has returned to photograph and measure more objects. Keio University holds a number of Komine-collected objects from New Ireland, and with this research Dai hopes to gain better provenience information for both collections, as well as a deeper insight into Komine’s collecting habits and journeys.
