Indios do Brasil

£495.00

Product description

Rondon was by anyone's standards a quite remarkable man. An army officer he oversaw the development of the telegraph system in Brazil. He was an explorer who found both new rivers and new peoples. He was a practical anthropologist, taking the indigenous people into partnership (and his predecessors had frequently been killed by them). He named a river and went on an expedition with President Teddy Roosevelt to explore it. There is a region named after him and the first Brazilian National Park was created by him.
Sub title -Cabeceiras do Rio Xingu, Rios Araguaia e Oiapoque. This is volume 2 of a three volume set published in the middle fifties by the Ministerio da Agricultura in Rio de Janeiro. It is a large book with a very large number of sepia photographs. There is marked tanning of all the pages. No DJ. Binding good.
The text is exclusively in Portuguese

This set is very rare - and expensive - and even the individual volumes are sought after
