First edition, first impression. A gathering of pieces previously published in a variety of journals, which “might otherwise not be easy to access” (Preface) and including “On certain Burial Customs as illustrative of the Primitive Theory of the Soul”, Frazer’s “first serious incursion into the wide field of Comparative Anthropology”, originally published in The Journal of the Archæological Institute in 1886, and his article on Taboo (originally contributed to the ninth edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica).

Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Touch of foxing to fore edge. An excellent copy.
