        Castes and Tribes of Southern India

      Madras: Government Press, 1909. Madras: Government Press,, 1909. 7 volumes octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to the spines and upper boards. Profusely illustrated from photographs. A little rubbed, the cloth variably spotted, endpapers browned, as also the text, a few plates coming loose, but overall a very good set. First edition. Thurston was superintendent of the Madras Government Museum from 1885-1908, before becoming the superintendent of ethnography for the Madras Presidency. The present work represents the findings of the anthropometric survey carried out by Thurston and his assistant Kadambi Rangachari under the aegis of the Ethnographic Survey of India, a body headed Sir Herbert Hope Risley. Risley's career has been described as "the apotheosis of pseudo-scientific racism", but it is also widely accepted that "his work completely revolutionized the native Indian view of ethnological inquiry" (ODNB), in a recent article in The Hindu, Raja Sekhar Vundru argues that "The British colonial project of codification of various castes and tribes of India provided an extraordinary input to the understanding of the diversity in Indian society" (24 January 2010). At the time the reviewer in Nature described the work as a "monumental record ... which will long retain its value as an example of outdoor investigation, and will remain a veritable mine of information, which will be of value".

Koch-Grünberg war in der Nachfolgeschaft von Ehrenreich und von den Steinen einer der Haupt-'verantwortlichen' für den hervorragenden Ruf der deutschen Brasilien-Ethnologie. Viele Jahre später folgte sein ebenfalls ausgezeichnetes 5bändiges Werk 'Vom Roroima zum Orinoko'. Fragen Sie auch danach beim Antiquariat KAIAPO. Im Wasmuth-Verlag hatte er schon zuvor das extrem seltene Foto-Tafelwerk 'Indianertypen aus dem Amazonasgebiet' herausgegeben (1906-1911).

        THE WATER BABIES by Charles Kingsley A fairy tale for a land-baby

Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. A very good copy of this lovely book, vellum a little dusty. 32 beautiful colour plates all mounted on brown art paper and protected by captioned tissue guards. This is Goble's first gift book and what a triumph it is. One of the most beautiful versions of Kingsley's tale ever to have been produced. A contemporary review said, "Goble in his thirty-two beautiful colour plates . . . delights us. He has given us sand and sea, fish and fairies which captivate us at once; for delicacy of colouring and grace of line he has bettered his best, and the volume is a continuous pleasure."

This is Goble's first gift book and what a triumph it is. One of the most beautiful versions of Kingsley's tale ever to have been produced. A contemporary review said, "Goble in his thirty-two beautiful colour plates . . . delights us. He has given us sand and sea, fish and fairies which captivate us at once; for delicacy of colouring and grace of line he has bettered his best, and the volume is a continuous pleasure."
