Spencer and Gillen's study has become the classic work on Central Australian aborigines. It is wonderfully illustrated.

Very nice presumably early reprint with all aspects of the first edition except that only "Copyright" and "Printed in Great Britain" are indicated on the copyright page with no repetition there of the year (or month) of publication as usually was done on Macmillan imprints prior to 1936.

Large folding map, text, and illustrations are all in excellent condition.

An attractive set of this definitive study of Australian aborigines with numerous illustrations taken from photographs and drawings. Green cloth slightly rubbed and faded with a small 1/2" squarish white scuff on the upper board of vol.1; slight bumping to corners. Some toning offset on endpapers (perhaps from paper laid in at one time).



Small check marks in ink appear above the publisher and 1927 date on the title pages of both volumes.

Price: $225.00
