About This Item

London: Seeley, Service and Company, 1929. The back board is mildly damp affected.. A record of a head-hunting people gradually emerging from a life of savage cruelty as bloody customs, with a description of their manners & ways of the beautires & potentialities of the islands. Octavo, frontispiece, fifteen ethnographic photo-plates, folding map, publisher's gilt cloth; bold bookseller's stamp on front endpaper, a handsome and attractive copy nonetheless. A somewhat racy account of native life in the Solomons, more anecdotal than anthropological, with much interesting observation.
