Robert Manners (1913-1996) graduated from Columbia College during the Great Depression and then worked for Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration. In 1950, he earned a PhD from Columbia, after which he taught at the University of Rochester. In 1952, he began teaching at Brandeis University and established the Anthropology Department in 1963. Manners did field work in Arizona with the Walapai and Havasupi Indians, in Africa with the Kipsigis of Kenya, in Puerto Rico and on the Caribbean islands.
Spine sunned, previous owner's stamp R A Manners, who the inscription is to, at head end pages, corners bumped. A better than very good copy of a scarce work on the Maya.
