ANATOMY OF PARADISE (1937)

This book, written by J.C. Furnas, offers an interesting perspective of the people of the Pacific Islands. So many Americans perceived the South Seas as they had seen in the movies of the 1930s. Even though the reading requires heavy duty concentration (dense writing style), one will find insight to the culture of this lost paradise. This book is in very good condition. All 542 pages are clean and without tears or cutouts. Measures approximately 8 1/2 inches by 6 inches. © 1937 by Curtis Publishing Company.
