Scribners, 1936, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No, Unstated
"In writing this book my sole object has been to present a true picture of native life in what might be termed the Unknown Philippines. The interests of clearness & brevity, & harmony have compelled me to be selective in my choice of material. It is quite beyond the scope of one book to describe the infinite variety of peoples who live on the four thousand inhabited islands of the Philippine Archipelago. Any picture that any individual attempts to paint of the Philippines must, of necessity, be fragmentary. I plead guilty to that charge before it is uttered." Size: 180mm - 250mm. 284 pages. Deckled edges (rough cut). Covers are rubbed, have some abrasions and some marking. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Travel & Places; Philippines; Indigenous Cultures.
