Description:

Hardcover. 8vo. H. Baillière. 1855. I--xxiv, 1--343; i--vii, 344-720. Plates. Illustrated with sixty-two coloured plates engraved on steel, and one hundred engravings on wood. Bound in maroon cloth with gilt title and gilt pictorial blindstamped design on the front boards. Chipping present to the crown of the spine with some light loss present. Foxing present to the endpapers and titles. Previous owner's name present on the title page. Text is free of marks, binding tight and solid. With fine hand-colored plates of members of several dozen third world and aboriginal tribes and races, including eight of American Indians with credit of George Catlin ("at least six more are almost certainly by Catlin" - Sabin). It was Prichard's conclusion that the human race developed from dark-skinned ancestors, and that lighter skin pigmentations of some races occurred simultaneously with the birth and growth of civilization. He had determined by 1836 that "all human races are of one species and one family" despite significantly different sub-species characteristics. His work concentrated on the physiological and psychological character of various races, breeding practices including across races, comparative anatomy, and current ethnologies. Volume II concentrates on North American Indians and residents of the Pacific islands; the Indian plates include portraits of identified and generic members of numerous tribes including Sioux, Ojibway, Sauk, Cherokee, Mandan, and several California tribes. Photos sent upon request. E-49; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 720 pages. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1855 edition. Volume: Volume I Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: London : Baillie?re 432 pages Volume: Volume I. Seller Inventory # 453676074
