1879 Bamboo Didjeridu

"This specimen was collected in northern Australia in 1879, that is, before the word 'didjeridu' was in circulation. In the first written report on this instrument, seen at Raffles Bay, Coburg Peninsula, the Aboriginal name for a small bamboo tube was given as ebroo (TB Wilson, Narrative of a Voyage Round the World, 1835). Measurements: Length 115 cm. Proximal end - external diameter: 3.9 cm. Distal end - external diameter: 5 cm. (Photograph by courtesy of the Museum fur Volkerkunde, Berlin. Cat. No. VI 2277)" (Moyle, 1978).
