About This Item

Edinburgh University Press, 1976. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Good/Good. Library discard with stamp on top page edges (which are also beginning to yellow not affecting crisp bright unmarked interior text and illustrations); library pouch, stamps and stickers on front endpapers but nowhere else in the book. Minimal wear to DJ due to clear plastic protector although there is some edge wear on bottom back edge and library sticker on spine, also the adhesive tape leaves residue marks on endpapers. Binding is solid though gently read and easily opens to frontispice. Obscure collection of essays, two of which are published for the first time, on an equally obscure topic and, yet, a tour de force in intellectual history and a key title in particular for both the history of publishing and the origins of the discipline of archaeology.
