London: Secker and Warburg. Fair in Poor dust jacket. 1938. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed and inscribed by Jomo Kenyatta atop front free endpaper. "One of the first really competent and instructive contributions to African ethnography by a scholar of pure African heritage. Through his upbringing Mr. Kenyatta combines to an unusual extent the knowledge of Western ways and Western modes of thought with a training and outlook essentially African. As a first-hand account of a representative African culture, as an invaluable document in the principles underlying culture-contact and change; last, not least, as a personal statement of the new outlook of a progressive African, this book will rank as a pioneering achievement of outstanding merit." - Introduction. Author was the founding father of Kenya and led the nation from its independence in 1963 until his passing in 1978. pp. xxvi, 339. Index. Glossary. Eight pages of black and white photographic plates.

(The author) focuses on the historical development of Japanese film, illustrated by a series of typical Japanese film posters. She details an industry and an art form shaped by the competing and merging forces of traditional culture and of economic and technological innovation." Edgewear, creases to bottom and bottom and top corners of front cover, soil on bottom and light soil to outside pages. We note pencilled underlining on at least 29 pages and pencilled marginalia on at least three pages and four creased page corners. Quotes… Read More
