New approach to the study of prehistory and evolution. 264pp with index, illustrated with 100 colour pictures and 140 black and white photographs, drawings and maps. Richard Leakey, His mother, Mary, and father, Louis, are synonymous with the study of early man. Their excavations at Olduvai Gorge, and the discovery, under Richard's direction, of '1470' at Lake Turkana, the oldest complete skull yet found, and many other fossil finds have pushed humankind's origins back some three million years. At time of publication, Richard Leakey was the Director of The National Museums of Kenya.
Excellent pages, a little edge and d/j wear.
