About This Item

2 parts: 98 pages with fold out table, map, music scores and plates; 109 pages with map, diagrams, music scores, tables (some folding), plates and appendixes. Royal octavo (9 ½ “ x 6 ½ “ rebound in red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Original wrappers bound in. From the library of Professor George M Foster.

This is the notes and reports from the Martin A Ryerson Expedition of 1899 and the Mrs Frank G Logan Expedition of 1900. The reports covered over seventeen tribes, including Aztecs, Huaxtecs, Mayas, Tehuantepecanos (Zapotecs), Zoques, Tzotzils, Tzendals, and Cholas.

George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.
