Abstract:

Letter written by William Bollaert on Oct. 3, 1860 to Sir Roderick I. Murchison, colleague and trustee of the British Museum, submitting his candidacy for curator of the South American Ethnographical Collection.

During the 1820's and 1850's Bollaert worked in Peru and travelled extensively throughout South America where he made some valuable antiquarian and ethnological studies which were later published. In view of his relevant experience and needing employment, Bollaert wrote to Murchison with the hope of obtaining a permanent position at the British Museum.
