Printing Details

Second edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14cm, 390pp.

First published in 1930, this work is an exploration of myth and magic in ancient cultures and how they tapped into the most elemental of human experiences-sex, death, tribalism, and war-to lay the foundations of modern religion, contemporary politics, and even the tradition of scientific inquiry. Armchair anthropologists, readers of comparative mythology, and anyone interested in the fundamental basis of the human subconscious will find this book extraordinarily enlightening.

Condition

The book is in good condition with some speckled foxing to the pages top edge. The dustwrapper is a sun-faded to the spine and a little worn to the edges.
