Second edition, second issue (first edition 1843; first issue of second edition 1851). This atlas of six ethnographical maps were intended as a companion to Prichard's Natural History of Man, originally published in 1843, and the expanded five-volume edition of his Researches into the Physical History of Mankind (1836-1847 and subsequent eds.). The maps show the distribution of races and the physical history of mankind in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas and Oceania, and indicate the movement of cultures native to these continents over time. The atlas was sold separately from the text, and is quite scarce.Book Id: 42183
