A Colourful pagent of the races of the modern world with approximately 3,500 photographs, 124 colour plates and many maps. A new and shorter edition. Vol I: pp 1 - 724 Abyssinia to Iceland.

I don't endorse the views expressed and would add that buyers should be aware of the racial and cultural biases contained therein.
