File III :  1896
File IV:  no date

Publisher is the "Koloniaal Museum in Haarlem".  This museum in Haarlem was the precursor of what later became the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam.
"In 1864 the Maatschappij ter Bevordering van Nijverheid (The Society for Industrial Promotion) decided that a start should be made with the compilation of objects for a future museum on Dutch overseas territories. Frederik van Eeden was commissioned to do this (the father of the writer). A collection was established in the attic of his house in Haarlem, a part of which can still be found in the Tropenmuseum.
Van Eeden collected objects from the Netherlands Indies from various sources and within no time they moved into the first floor of Paviljoen Welgelegen in Haarlem. The Colonial Museum finally opened its doors in 1871. 
In 1910 the Vereniging Koloniaal Instituut (Association of Colonial Institute) was founded and was responsible for finding a location for and the building of the new Colonial Institute and Colonial Museum in Amsterdam. In 1923 the building on the corner of Mauritskade and Linnaeusstraat was completed and the collections from Haarlem could be moved to Amsterdam. On 9 October 1926 Queen Wilhelmina officially opened the new Colonial Institute.
The aim and the name of the museum was changed in 1950. As from 1945 the museum had been shortly called the Indisch Museum (Indies Museum) until it was changed to the Tropenmuseum. The entire world of the tropics became the area of work of the institute that was now called the Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen (Royal Tropical Institute). As the collection had mainly consisted of objects from the (former) colonies many new objects had to be bought or exchanged with other museums.
As from the end of the 1990s the permanent exhibitions were reorganized. Objects once again became more important. The change in cultures and mutual influence are the main subjects of the museum. 
The exhibitions focus on various themes, from contemporary art to religious traditions and historic photographs. The museum regularly organizes guided tours, lectures, scavenger hunts and musical workshops."

AUGUSTA CURIEL  Fotografie in Suriname

AUGUSTA CURIEL Fotografie in Suriname




Suriname early photography

Van Dijk, J. e.a.,  AUGUSTA CURIEL  Fotografie in Suriname, Amsterdam 2009. Hardcover 24 x 30 cm. 192 pag.  with 238 photographs.
"From 1904 until her death in 1937 Augusta Curiel was, along with her sister Anna, the most important photographer in Suriname. Anyone who wanted their photograph taken came to her: individuals, organizations and institutions. Her photos appeared, often anonymously, in numerous publications. The book is the result of an intensive collaboration between the Museum in Paramaribo, Surinam and the Tropical Museum in Amsterdam. 
The pictures of Paramaribo are a walk through the city as it looked in the early twentieth century; you will find back many familiar places, but it offers also many amazing town faces. Many photos of the plantations, the interior and its inhabitants. This is the first book devoted to the work of Augusta Curiel, the principal photographer of her time in Suriname. Historically this is a significant photo collection, also a visual contribution to the socio-economic history of Suriname."
