About this Item

Handsome brown volume with stamped design in black with gilt highlights. Just a bit of wear to extremities (several corners lightly bumped) with some light staining to front board. The last 15 or so pages show a darkish stain bordering the edge of the text block, but not interfering with it. Tightly bound! 461 pp. Fascinating account of peoples the author found "odd", albeit from his ethnocentric "civilized" perspective. Still the descriptions of the peoples, their cultural, religious, military and culinary habits are closely observed, and for the most part, sensitively rendered. Chapters include: Man-Eaters of the Feegee Islands; Mundrucus, or Beheaders; The Centaurs of the Gran Chaco; Bosjesmen, or Bushmen; The Amazonian Indians; The Water-Dwellers of Maracaibo; The Esquimaux; The Tongans, or Friendly Islanders; The Tturoomans; The Ottomacs, or Dirt-Eaters; The Comanches, or Prairie Indians; The Pehuenches, or Pampas Indians; The Yamparicos, or Root-Diggers; The Guaraons, or Palm-Dwellers; The Laplanders; The Andamaners, or Mud-Redaubers; The Patagonian Giants; The Furgian Dwarfs.
