First published in 1936 and 1937 these rare books are unknown to most anthropologists, art dealers and collectors.

Davidson was the most important ethnographer of his time and his reputation for the quality and quantity of work produced is unmatched.

All subsequent students of Aboriginal Art owe a debt to Davidson's work.

Not only do the volumes extensively cover the rock engravings and paintings but discuss in detail techniques and styles of decoration, on weapons, baskets and containers, pearl shells, baobab nuts, tree carvings, grave posts, bullroarers, churingas, waningas and many others objects.

The symbolism and distribution of design elements and originating areas are also discussed.

This is an essential volume for anyone with an interest, scientific, aesthetic, or commercial, in Aboriginal art and artifacts.
