Book Description Royal Geographical Society, London, 1941. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 8vo. 12 pages, plus a full page map and photographic plates for illustration. Original condition with blue wrappers, titles to front, and containing all the ads. This is a complete issue, seldom found in such good and original condition. A noteworthy and engaging study of the life and custom of the Chaouïa Berbers, the Aurasian people eastern Algeria's Aurès mountains, and of French influence a region which would be fraught with brutality in a revolutionary war only thirteen years later, as the same people would fight for independence. Describing it as one of the most clearly defined cultural regions in North Africa, the account presents a mixture of cultural, religious, linguistic and ethnographical analyses with topics such as agricultural practices, the tradition of transhumance and annual migration in search of better watered pastures, important commodities in a semi-nomadic society, flat topped dwellings in small villages or dechras, a description of Menâa which was one of the largest villages, defence against invading enemy tribes, weaponry and restrictions on the latter, the impact of French assimilation efforts on Berber society even with a nominal number of foreigners physically present, and in turn, Berber interest in French culture. The lieutenant's account is well illustrated, further providing notes and statistics relating to the images. Bookseller Inventory # 025421
