first treatise on the mwana hiti, the wooden, highly stylized torso of a female
figure, this important volume accompanied a major 1990 exhibition of mwana hiti
and other objects of Tanzanian art at the Fred Jahn Gallery in Munich.
Impressively thorough with almost 500 excellent photographs and containing
important essays and research data on stylistic differences, typology, and the
ethnography of Zaramo and Kwere peoples of Eastern Tanzania, this study is
another impressive work by an author whose writings are a boone to collector
and scholar alike. Standardwork on the material culture of Tanzania, with maps
showing the typological distribution.

Ouvrage majeur sur les
objets tanzaniens, bien sûr les petites effigies bien connues appelées « mwana hiti
» (voir page de couverture) mais aussi les autres productions matérielles d’une
grande partie des peuples de Tanzanie comme le montre le sommaire (note : les
Makondé et ethnies proches sont étudiés à part dans un autre livre du même
auteur « Tanzania » également dans cette vente). Avec cartes de répartition géographique des objets selon
Poids - weight = 2800 g Shipment by economy mail - envoi économique : Belgium = 8 eur - France = 10 eur (colissimo) - to other european countries = 11 eur - to non european countries = 14 eur (Envoi en courrier prioritaire pour la Belgique et la France - shipment as book by economy mail to other countries - if you wish an other way of shipment contact me) Important warning - rates for shipment by registered mail with tracking number - tarif pour envoi avec suivi I had to
face recently problems with very slow delivery of several parcels,
especially those sent to the US. The parcels were sent quickly after
payment (as fixed in the adverts), by economy mail from France = without
tracking number. By experience this much cheaper way of payment (much
cheaper than by registered mail recommended by paypal) is and remains
reliable (all the parcels arrived finally). But delivery took sometimes
between a month and 6 weeks, a situation that didn't happen earlier when
delivery was almost always done between 2 and 3 weeks after shipment.
These delays made the buyers and myself anxious and nerveous, and my
paypal account was even blocked because of these delays in which I have
no responsability. I'm always ready to send the parcels by economy mail
but the customer has to know how slow it can be. So, I will add in the
final invoice the choice between economy mail and registered mail with
costs of each system and let the customer decide what he prefers.Here
are the rates for registered shipment, with tracking number (compare
with the costs of shipment by economy mail as fixed in the description
part of the advert), sent from Belgium and from France, I will take the
