Athiopen des Western: Forschungsreisen in Portugiesisch-Guinea

Nature volume 131, pages 599600 (29 April 1933) | Download Citation



TO state that “Athiopen des Westens” is a sumptuous production is not to exaggerate the lavish feast which this beautifully produced work unfolds to the eye. To write that the 531 plates—400 of which form the sole contents of vol. 2—comprise the pièce de résistance, is not to belittle the narrative matter which constitutes the greater part of the text of vol. 1.
