Notes

First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Rhotert on the front free endpaper to an unnamed recipient, thanking them for their support for the Forschungsinstituts für Kulturmorphologie. The leader's account of the work of the Nordgruppe der XII. Deutschen-Innerafrikanischen Forschungsexpedition in the Transjordan and Libya includes the first scientific study of the rock art at Kilwa, pioneering work in the field, never translated into English.

This is not an uncommon book institutionally, with some 70 copies showing on WorldCat, and is fairly frequently encountered commercially, but very rarely inscribed or in such excellent condition.

Description

Quarto. Original grey-cream linen, lettered in brown on spine and front cover with designs derived from the desert petroglyphs. With the dust jacket and original plain card slipcase.

Illustrations

30 plates, one of them a folding panorama, illustrations to the text, 75 of them full-page, 2 full-page maps and a folding map at the rear.

Condition

Jacket just a little rubbed and with some very minor chipping at the edges, the slipcase browning and becoming brittle, but overall a very good copy indeed.
