About the Author:
The late Edward E. Evans Pritchard was a Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford.
46 plates on 33, and 9 illustrations and a full-page map in the text; cloth, gilt back, a very good, bright, near fine copy in dust wrapper, the latter lightly frayed at edges. The standard reference and an anthropological classic. The author’s long-term association with the Azande peoples of the Sudan resulted in a number of other equally eminent studies. All the plates save one are from photographs by the author. Scarce, especially in this condition. First Edition printed inside of book 1937
