Hyland House Publishing, Melbourne - first edition ISBN:1864470216, 1997. Hardcover, 10¼" x 6¼", with dust jacket. (packed book weighs 2kgs/4½lbs) AS NEW book in AS NEW unclipped dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 60 b&w photographs, glossary, bibliography, and index. These letters place Spencer and Gillen firmly at the centre of the development of anthropology as a modern discipline. Between 1894 and 1903, the outback Australian postmaster Frank Gillen wrote letters to the Melbourne academic Baldwin Spencer. The pair has done pioneering fieldwork to record the culture and beliefs of Australia's Aboriginal people. These letters provide crucial background to their books, which profoundly influenced theories on the development of human society around the world. Where appropriate, extracts from the field journals of both men are included with the highly-readable letters. The photographs reproduced here were chiefly taken by the pair.
