Viking, New York: 1987. 0670801674 / 9780670801671 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Beginning in 1930, a series of expeditions led by the Australian Michael Leahy went looking for gold in the unexplored highlands of New Guinea and found instead an intact civilization of nearly one million people who had no previous contact with the outside world. During four years of "first contact" exploration, Leahy took thousands of photographs of these tribal people and shot many reels of film footage, documenting an event that can never again take place on earth: the confrontation on large scale - and ultimately the collision - of Western and pretechnological cultures. This book chronicles the "first contact" experience in detail.

Millions of years ago, there was a creature on the African savanna. We don't know who this creature was or what it looked like, but it was te last ancestor we shared with the great apes. After that, hominids, members of the human family, branched in one direction and the great apes went in another. There's plenty of humor as well as solid information in Traces of Life, and throughout, readers are urged to ponder this elemental question: What does it mean to be human? At what point in time did a small, apelike creature pass through an imaginary doorway and become - us? Includes an Index.

9 MUMFORD, LEWIS. The Transformations Of Man.
Collier Books, New York: 1962. First Collier Books Edition. s Softcover. Fair condition. Underlining on some pages. 
In what may be the most provocative and stimulating of his many books Lewis Mumford writes, "The moment for another great historic transformation of man has come." He foresees a mew life as radically different from the life we now know as a marble temple from a clay hut. Yet man's very humanity, he warns, is now threatened by a"barbarism more elemental than has ever been encountered." Therefore, he examines past transformations man has gone through to uncover the spiritual, personal and technological resources we possess to overcome this threat. "A thought-provoking work. Highly recommended." - Library Journal
