Hardcover with dust jacket, illustrated paper over white cloth spine with orange spine titles, 26 by 35.5 cm, 400 pp., illus., audio CD in envelope mounted on rear pastedown. New, still in the publisher’s shrinkwrap. An absolutely stunning collection of full-color, full-page images focusing on ceremonies throughout Africa including sections on birth and initiation, courtship and marriage, royalty and power, seasonal rites, beliefs and worship, and spirits and ancestors. Originally issued as a two-volume set, “Abrams is proud to publish a newly designed one-volume edition of this definitive work on the traditional rituals of Africa, containing more than half the magnificent photographs that were in the original edition plus new images that will focus fresh attention on specific ceremonies. Many of these rituals are vanishing; never have they been portrayed with the intimacy and skill that Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher bring to this glorious book. The book is accompanied by an audio CD of African ceremonies.”
