The Image of Africa British Ideas and Action, 1780-1850

By Curtin, Philip D.

Madison: University of Wisconsin, 1964. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Uncertain, Possibly First. Strange publishing history here. Book says "published 1964" McBrides says FP for this era, I am skeptical, I think this is 1st hardcover of this title by professor Curtin (price $8.00, 526 pages). It was done in hbk. U.K. version in '65, 2 v. pb' @73 (won the Schuyler earlier) and redone by UW later, again in 2 v. pb format. Curtin bio. bibliographies do not clarify. From profs. Memoir 'Fringes' pg. 130 IOA done in '64 - pg. 149 IOA done in '67 -pg.180 has 2nd unpub vol. of IOA done in 1982, who knows? To further muddy matters I believe the 2v. pbs. are this books content. Any clarification gratefully accepted, would love to know how the TOC on the pbs read. UW ignoring my Emails, I do not blame them. Hardcover book handsome and straight, unmarked, jacket tattery, no long tears, decent..
