Berlin: Verlag von Carl Marschner, 1910 Recent binder’s cloth, Roy.8vo. xx,455pp. frontispiece and 20 plates, 358 illustrations from photographs, 2 maps, (1 folding), index. Max Weiss (b. 1874) an officer in the German colonial army was responsible for this detailed anthropological account of northern German East Africa, which has become something of an anthropological classic.

The book is printed throughout on coated art paper, the illustrations are fine anthropological studies from photographs, and cover the peoples of northern Tanzania: the Watussi, Wahutu, Waganda, Wageia, Bakulia, and the Masai. The last chapter deals with their material culture. Encased in modern black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and with the original front wrapper laid down onto the upper board. With the stamp of the Foreign Office to the front wrapper, a very nice copy.
