Quarto. XI, , 352pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth with brown lettering on spine. Book housed in its original slipcase. This first volume of a four-volume work concerns itself with the representations of the black in Egyptian, Kushite, Greek and Roman art. For the first time, the archaeological finds from Egypt, Nubia and the Sudan and the art of Greco-Roman antiquity are brought together to form a coherent statement on a scarcely known iconography. The written documentation is complemented by a selection of photographs that form in themselves a unique statement on representations of blacks. The photographs testify to the longevity of the image of the black and to the complexity of the Occidental response to him. Slipcase, dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition.
