silver titles spine; translated from the french by Lilian A. Clare & re-edited for this edition with a foreword by E.E. Evans-Pritchard; Author's preface to original edition: "The object of this book is a study of the ways in which those whom we have agreed to call "primitives" conceive of their own individuality. Guided by results obtained in previous researches, I propose to inquire into the notions they possess of their life-principle, their soul, and their personality. An examination of the facts available has led me to recognize that, properly speaking, they have not any notions of them. I find myself face to face with 'pre-notions'. To do away with all ambiguity, therefore, I must define at the outset what is meant by the title The Soul of the Primitive. We are dealing here with the ideas which, among the peoples termed primitive, correspond more or less closely with those which the word 'soul' implies to our minds.". a clean copy with some fading to the spine; including index - 351 pages.
