Edition: First printing.
Boston: MFA / Museum of Fine Arts, (2004) dj. Hardcover first edition - "Presenting the William and Bertha Teel Collection for the first time, this book provides a chance to think about how our vision of such objects is shaped by the ethnographic, primitive, or modern labels that have been applied in the West, and to compare it to how those same works were viewed in their birthplace. Lavish, full-color illustrations of over 100 choice objects combine forces with essays by leading African art specialists Suzanne Preston Blier, Michael Kan, and Edmund B. Gaither, and object descriptions by the collector himself, to provide a thoughtful and visually stimulating examination of these important African forms" Includes 138 full-color and 9 black-and-white illustrations. Bibliography. Large square format, printed on heavy glossy stock - a beautiful book in every way. 207 pp. ISBN: 0-878466592.
