"Marcel Griaule (1898-1956) was a French anthropologist known for his studies of the Dogon people of West Africa, and for pioneering ethnographic field studies in France. Between 1928 and 1933 Griaule participated in two large-scale ethnographic expeditions--one to Ethiopia and the ambitious Dakar to Djibouti expedition which crossed Africa. This book has been written as the result of a first ethnographic and linguistic mission entrusted to the author by the Minister of Public Instruction.There is no question here of a travel diary of a romanticized story, but of an objective description of certain vicissitudes of my first journey to Abyssinia. The object of this mission was the study of the customs, religion, magic, technology and arts of inner Abyssinia." Owner's Ex-Libris plate on front pastedown. Lightly foxed bottom and fore- text block edges with only the faintest wear, else, Pristine Interior. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Yellow cloth with red lettering to front board and spine. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 001170
