Description

Stefansson, Vilhjalmur; Earnest A. Hooton (Intro.); Eugene F. Du Bois (Intro.). Not By Bread Alone. New York: The Macmillan Company | Printed by J.J. Little & Ives Company, New York, 1946. First Edition, First Printing. pp. xvi, 339. 8vo., measuring 22 x 15 cm. Green cloth over boards with white lettering, and rules to the front board and spine. Light bumping to spine ends, one very miniscule spot to the base of the spine. Internally, the contents remain remarkably bright, clean, and unmarked with tight, square binding. A very presentable copy indeed, of an important anthropological work on the eating habits of the Inuit communities of Northern Canada thus, making Stefansson an early, and inadvertent proponent of what would later become known as the ‘Ketogenic diet’ (or No-Carb Diet). Overall, very good. Scarce in commerce and in this condition. Hardcover. (#2089) $175.00
