Ra'ivavae, Marshall, Donald
1 Marshall, Donald Ra'ivavae
U.S. Modern Literary Editions (Curtis Bks.) 1961 #123-07035. First Modern Iiterary Edition (Curtis). Mass Market Paperback. Fine Minus. 
       $.75 is the original price. 208 pages. Light beige paper. Tight binding. Red colour on the edges.
In General: A very small bit of edge wear's at the bottom right corner of the Front Cover. The Back Cover has a vertical 3" crease and a minor bit of wear at the edges. A small bit of beige marking's at the Spine side of both Covers because whoever owned the book taped some Scotch tape to the pages to hold them and this, of course, fell off and left marks. I reglued the book properly. A previous Owner placed a value on his book but I rather suspect it was a younger kid entering his "fair value" price.
Story: Dr. Marshall was an Anthropologist who did a Study on Polynesia and this book was the result. I browsed it and it reads well. Recommended. 004548
