Chez les Mangeurs d'Hommes. Nouvelles Hebrides. [In the House of the Cannibals].

Paris: Editions Ducharte, 1931.

Quarto, 57 pages, with 80 plates. FIRST EDITION. Beautiful black and white photographs of this now lost culture. Includes a number of plates of masks, several of which have stenciled color. Includes images of tribesman hunting and fishing, engaging in ritual performances and, finally, raiding and burning an enemy clan village. A bit of foxing throughout, otherwise a very good copy, in a lightly soiled and edgeworn but overall very good illustrated publisher's wrappers.
