Bali by Philip Hanson Hiss, first edition 1941.
Published Robert Hale Ltd, London. Printed in USA. Stated first edition.
Very good condition hardback. Burgundy cloth hardback, large format, with gilt vignette on cover. No dustjacket. Some minor staining to front cover.
Map design endpapers, text very good - nice and clean if just a little discolored at edges. 112pp plus 80 plates.
Book covers Balinese history, society, culture and art. Worth buying for the photographs alone - stunning photography (detailed notes are also provided of how the photographer went about this process, down to developing the films in a tropical climate). This is Bali before modern day tourism.
