Original green cloth rebacked in green cloth with the original spine laid back down, rubbed spot at head of spine (label removal?). Wear at corners, a few surface marks, light puckering to cloth. Old stamp to title page, tissue guards tattered but largely present, browning to page edges. 61 photographic plates in black and white (2 bound out of order), two color maps (one folding) and 13 chromolithograph plates of headdresses, a vase, jewelry, and a drum. A sumptuous production documenting the 1883 Exposition in Amsterdam.

Each of the 28 inhabitants from the exposition are pictured, typically from two angles, and, in a departure from "anthropological" works of the period, they are both depicted and named. Roland was the grandson of Lucien Bonaparte. Size: Folio. Text is clean and unmarked. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Over 3 kilos. Category: Anthropology; Antiquarian & Rare.
