Original black cloth with gilt titling to spines, b&w illustrations, index, red-coloured top edge. A facsimile reprint of the 1926 MacMillan first edition with a new introduction by renowned anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski. From the introduction: "These two volumes read like the Arabian Nights. In fact this book is perhaps the best companion and commentary to any oriental classic. The long chapter on the evil eye appeals no less to the antiquarian's imagination that to the interest of the sociologist. ... What Westermarck has to say on magic and religion ought to be read and considered by all the students of the subject." Boards lightly spot faded, edges of text block a little dusty otherwise a tight, clean VG+ set in VG dust jackets (Dust jackets have general modest shelf-wear, light creasing around the edges, jacket of Vol. II has a narrow, inch long strip - insect nibble - missing from the fold where the rear panel meets the turn over. Not particularly noticeable due to its position. Jackets now protected by removable mylar sleeves). A large, heavy set, so additional shipping to that automatically quoted will be requested, the amount depending upon destination. Item #69658
