Open up The Secret Museum of Mankind and discover a lost world--the fading faces of the indigenous humanity that once covered the globe. Within these pages, the curious armchair adventurer will be taken on a visual tour of the native cultures of America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the islands of the seas as they existed upon the book's first publication nearly a century ago. Over a thousand black-and-white photographs with captions that reflect the unabashed curiosity and marked sensationalism of the early-twentieth-century adventurer transport the reader to another era. Here revealed are the astonishing variety of rituals, religions, customs, physical decorations, and dress of the world's native cultures. One cannot help but be spellbound by the elaborate costuming, the intricate and painstaking bodily manipulations, the fascinating practices of he cultures whose native expressions and lifestyles have unfortunately suffered at the destructive advancing hands of the twentieth century.About the Author:
