An attempt is made to reconstruct the trail of a collection of birds from the Solomon Islands to museums in Genoa (Museo Civico di Storia Naturale “G. Doria”, Genova), Turin (Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali, Torino) and Milan (Museo Civico di Storia Naturale, Milano), Italy, with the aid of museum specimens, documents and letters. The birds of this collection were described in the 1880s by Edward Pierson Ramsay of the Australian Museum in Sydney. Type specimens of four taxa of Solomon Islands birds are involved.
