Excerpt from Illustrated London, or a Series of Views in the British Metropolis and Its Vicinity

The visitor to this grand depot of science having passed the entrance, in Great Russel-street, is at present (1847) conducted by a temporary staircase to a landing, whence he can descend to the Gallery ofantiquities, presently to be more particularly mentioned, or ascend to the ethnographical room, which contains various miscellaneous articles, chie?y of human art and superstition, in a state nearer to, or farther from, savageness. Such as various figures, idols, arms, &c., from China and Japan; baskets, and specimens of native cloth from Africa; Esquimaux dresses, &c., brought to England by Captain Sir Edward Parry in 1822, and various curiosities collected during Captain Beechay's voyage of discovery, in 1825-28; different articles of dress and war, from the west coast of North America, and the South Seas, by Captain Cook and others; numerous Mexi can curiosities purchased at the sale of Mr. Bullock's museum Arctic antiquities from the island of Sacrificios; implement and utensils from English and French Guiana; ornaments, and other manufactures of the ancient Peruvians; specimens of matting, cloth, mats, &c., from the Marquesas, Tahiti, New Zealand, Navigators' Islands, &c. Many of these specimens were, half a century ago, surveyed with more intense interest than at present, from their great novelty; now so many ship loads of such articles have been brought to England, and des cribed by so many persons visiting the southern hemisphere.
