51 volumes complete with diagrams, illustrations, plates, maps, figures, indexes. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8 1/2") issued in wrappers. Some reprints, most first editions.Current Anthropology, whose first issue was launched in 1959, is one of the discipline's oldest and most distinguished journals, and has been sponsored since its founding by the Wenner-Gren Foundation.

While the journal has changed over the years, its original principles are still clearly present and can be traced back to the unique collaboration between the Foundation, led by Paul Fejos,and the… Read More
