FRAZER (Sir James George): The Golden Bough, A Study in Magic and Religion,
complete set of the very extensively expanded and definitive third edition in 12 volumes royal octavo, all very fine copies in original cloth. PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. comprising: - The Magic Art & the Evolution of Kings (in 2 volumes, 1932); Baldur the Beautiful: the Fire Festivals of Europe & the Doctrine of the External Soul (in 2 volumes, 1930); Spirits of the Corn & of the Wild (in 2 volumes, 1933); Adonis Attis Osiris: Studies in the History of Oriental Religion (2 vols, 1927); The Dying God (1930); Taboo & the Perils of the Soul (1927); The Scapegoat (1933); Bibliography & General Index (1935), complete in 12 vols, original fine grained green cloth with elaborate mistletoe motif blocked on the front boards, top edges gilt, a remarkably excellent clean set, London, Macmillan, 1927 -35. *See Printing & the Mind of Man 374. The Golden Bough first appeared in 1890 in a two-volume edition but was twice revised and expanded, the third and final edition originally appearing in twelve volumes in 1911-15. The present set constitutes later impressions of that great edition which is the best both textually and physically - since all later editions were printed on ever-inferior and thinner paper and with inferior cheap cloth bindings. "Sir James George Frazer originally set out to discover the origins of one ancient custom in Classical Rome - the plucking of the Golden Bough from a tree in the sacred grove of Diana, and the murderous succession of the priesthood there - and was led by his investigations into a twenty-five year study of primitive customs, superstitions, magic and myth throughout the world. The monumental work which resulted has been a rich source of anthropological material and a literary masterpiece for nearly a century." (Book ref. 20470)   £480.00

BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: IRISH UNIVERSITY PRESS: Anthropology
3 vols large folio. In 1834 a series of reports and papers on the condition of the native inhabitants of British colonies was presented to parliament. The direct result of these papers - contained in volume 3 of this set - was the appointment of a Select Committee to examine the state of these native inhabitants and to suggest measures to provide for the protection of personal rights.The reports of the Select Committees issued in 1836 and 1837 deal with native tribes in the following areas: Africa, Australasia, Pacific area, South America, West Indies and North America. Includes: Report from the Select Committee on Aborigines, 1836; Correspondence and other Papers Relating to Aboriginal Tribes in British Possessions, 1834. * PHOTOGRAPHS & FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of these papers overcame this by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in half green morocco leather . They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear and have the great advantage over the original printings because on a strong laid acid free paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has neat library stamp on front endpaper and verso title, otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. (Book ref. 20041)   £120.00
