Accra, Ghana: Ghana Publishing Corporation, 1970. 1st Edition. Oblong octavo, publisher's illustrated stiff paper wraps, illustrated endpapers.
Museum guide for the National Museum of Ghana, conceptualized and created by the Ghana Museums and Monument Board (GMMB) in response to the growth of the museum since its inception in 1957, and incorporation of other major collections during the 1960s. The survey of the museum's collection is categorized by object-type and material (stone, beadwork, pottery, metalwork, wood, bone and ivory, etc.), with each section illustrated with black-and-white photos and reproductions and accompanying descriptive text; and with a list of plates and floorplan to the galleries. Errata slip tipped in before title-page. Light creasing and soiling to wraps. Very good. Item #3655
