Considering the history of the DRC,
I like the maps included in the footnotes in this book because they reveal the changing landscape of this region from 1902 through the early 1970s. The descriptions of the objects are not difficult to understand or interpret, so it can also be a good resource for beginners, especially if you are keen on relics from Africa's third largest country. The ethnographic photos are also fairly compatible with the elementary text, and there are many objects photographed from the Bronson collection. Certainly better quality than what one can anticipate from typical book binding nowadays.
This book is based on an exhibition held at: North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, April 23, 1978-June 4, 1978; Museum of African Art, Washington, D.C., July 25. 1978-September 25, 1978; Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, Los Angeles, November 14, 1978-January 21, 1979.
