1 Le Roy, Mgr. A. La Religion des Primitifs
Paris Gabriel Beauchesne 1925 Reprint. Original Cloth Very Good No Jacket Book 
522pp. + 1pp. ad. Bound in contemporary, plain brown cloth. Illustrated with b+w photographic plates of primitive peoples including a couple of graphic pictures of an execution and a tree decorated with the heads of defeated warriors. French language. Ownership inscription of Vernon A. Anderson on a blank prelim. According to the introduction to the "finding aid" for Vernon A. Anderson's papers at Northwestern University, Anderson was a missionary with the American Presbyterian Congo Mission, beginning in 1921. He was sent to the Bibanga station on the Lulua River. From 1921 to 1946 he worked among the Baluba-lubilashi tribe; the first missionary to do so. His dissertation was titled, "Witchcraft in Africa; A Missionary Problem" and he was awarded a Phd from Southern Seminary for this work in 1948. Laid in to this volume is a typed letter signed (TLS) from Anderson to "Monsieur Van Hemelryck" dated November 3, 1943 from Bibanga. In the letter, Anderson thanks Hemelryck for three copies of "Kongo-Overzee" and sends three books to him (including this one). In 1959 there was a van Hemelryck who resigned from the position of Belgian minister to the Congo. I cannot verify that this book definitively belonged to him, but it is an interesting possibility. The TLS has a fold down the center and some browning. Corners bumped. Front hinge starting. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Price: 25.00 USD
