About This Item

New York: Abrams, 1969. This is a fine hardcover copy in a fine dust jacket. Completely clean inside and out. No wear at all. One tiny black star (remainder mark) to the bottom page-edge. Carl A.Schmitz was one of the great scholars in this field, and this was his last work completed just before he died in 1966. It unites all of his interests:culture, history, religion and art, and focusses on the area he knew best. With sections on Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia (where Schmitz made his greatest contribution) this is undoubtedly still the best 1 volume survey of the art and culture of this varied region. Bibliography. Stout oblong folio, 11" high X 12" wide, 405 pages. With 337 illustrations including 50 tipped-in color plates. Large heavy book, foreign shipping will be extra. This book will be securely wrapped and packed in a sturdy box and shipped with tracking. . Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.
