First edition, primary binding. "Despite the book's title, the nineteen narratives here clearly have literary rather than ethnographic intent and structure, with fully-shaped characters, plots, dialogue and other accouterments of fiction. Alas, the pretense of authenticity may have inhibited the author from exploiting the full artistic potential of these stories, many of which contain elements of the supernatural and macabre. The book is of more interest, finally, for the superb illustrations by Clark, who obviously felt no such inhibitions." - Robert Eldridge. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Day, A Supplemental Checklist, p. 46. BAL 10866. Not in Smith. Cloth just a bit dusty, a bright, near fine copy. (#113614). N° de réf. du libraire 113614
