This book was published to wide critical acclaim. Lindt was awarded a gold medal at the 1888 Melbourne Centennial International Exhibition, 'with special mention for his ethnological photographs, landscapes and photographs from shipboard; they are simply unique. From a technical point of view the mentioned pictures may be considered as the best in this Exhibition. The ethnological illustrations from New Guinea are even more interesting ...' (judges' report).
