Leiden University Libraries
The Collection Oudheidkundige Dienst in Nederlandsch-Indiƫ (Archaeological Survey of the Netherlands Indies), and post-World War II Dinas Purbakala Republik Indonesia, was formed between 1901 and 1956. However, also reprints of pre-1901 photographs were included, among others photographs by Isidore van Kinsbergen and Woodbury & Page. The sepia-tinted and black-and-white photographs, produced in various techniques, document Hindu-Buddhist and Islamic antiquities, prehistoric sites, excavations, restorations, archeological art and ethnological artefacts in situ and in museums, inscriptions, and indigenous and colonial buildings from modern times recorded in Sumatra, Java, Madura, Bali, Kalimantan and the Moluccas.
