Reader's note

Add a touch of vintage chic to your bookshelf with this beautiful edition of African Dances by Geoffrey Gorner. In a spirit of deep sympathy with African character and life, the author describes the people, black and white, whom he met, the places he passed through and the customs and institutions of the various West Africa peoples, rapidly fading under the advancing attack of imitation European civilization. He explains their magical and religious beliefs and rites, particularly the fetishism which is the original of the VooDoo which has been transplanted to the West Indies. He describes their dances and festivals, tells of the effects of missionary labours among them and criticizes keenly the administrative methods of the French in Africa. Just one of the many antique, rare and obscure books available on our online vintage bookstore.
