The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 41
[The late period at which the Exhibits from Fiji were received in Melbourne, and the necessarily hurried manner in which the various articles had to be arranged in the Court so that it might be opened to the public as early as possible, have prevented the compiler of the Fijian catalogue from attending to the classification of the different products. In order to preserve uniformity between the private and the official catalogues in the order and numbering of the Exhibits, there has been no alteration made in the arrangement.]
