Natural Man: A Record From Borneo

£29.99

Product description

Natural Man: A Record From Borneo
Charles Hose
With illustrations and a map showing the distribution of the tribes
Macmillan and Co Limited, London, 1926.
Hardback; 180 x 255 mm; blue boards with gold titles on spine, and a gold pictorial of a native mask on the front cover; xvi & 284 pages, top edge gilt. No dust jacket.
The book is in fair condition. The binding is sound although there is some cracking along the gutters in a couple of places. The boards have been affected by damp and are bumped, particularly both ends of the spine, and there is some wear along the joints. The front paste-down endpaper is annotated in black ink: “F E Drummond Hay 62 Pulteney Street bath”. Internally there is a little foxing here and there.
This book records the experiences of the author Charles Hose (1863-1929) in Borneo and his relationship to the headhunter tribes. Born in Hertfordshire, England he was appointed an administrator in Sarawak under the second Rajah, Sir Charles Brooke. His large collection of ethnographic objects from Borneo was purchased by the British Museum in 1905.
The book will appeal to those with an interest in ethnography and studying in this field. The wealth of detail recorded by Charles Hose and the illustrations present a picture of life and customs on Borneo as they were nearly 100 years ago.
