Signed by Author Signed with the authors compliments to J. C. Squire.J W £rd Sept 1921 the author spent several years as an assistant district officer among the yorubas in nigeria and collected the folk-lore here presented in blank verse, embodying the religious beliefs of a tribe which inhabits a large area in west africa. this is a crisp copy of the book in a fresh and clean unchipped dust jacket that is now protected by a loose fitting plastic shield. This short book is a translation of some of the myths of the Yoruba people of Nigeria. It is a history of the creation of the world, the gods, and humanity, and the early days of the sacred city of Ífè, the traditional center of Yoruba culture. The text was recited to the author/translator by the high priests of Ífè, and the book is still cited in some books on traditional Yoruba religion and thought today. It has undeservedly become quite rare, as it can be considered a minor classic in the field. N° de réf. du libraire 062294
