Descripción London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd., 1935, 1935. Octavo. Original purple cloth, title gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. Endpapers slightly browned, light toning and marginal browning throughout, but overall very good in price-clipped, lightly rubbed, and marginally chipped jacket. 25 sanguine tinted halftone plates from photographs. First edition in English, first published in France in 1926 as Essai de folklore marocain. Dr. Legey spent around a quarter of a century in North Africa providing free healthcare to "destitute native women" (Ha, French Women and the Empire, p. 76). Raised in Constantine, Algeria, she returned there on completion of her medical training in Paris and started a clinic for Muslim women: "With minimal financial help from the French government and a sparsely furnished premise, Legey provided free consultations three times a week to the local women. In 1909, she left Algeria for Morocco where she repeated the same experience with great success: 'Living in Morocco, my true activity took place in the heart of the native family, I was called everywhere; I had access to all the homes, even those of people most fanatical and most hostile to French influence'". This access presented Dr Legey with a unique opportunity to amass the data on local rites and traditions presented here. Speake includes Legey among the "scholar-administrators" who arrived with establishment of the French protectorate in 1912, whose "exacting labours" produced such "meticulous detailed work" (Literature of Travel and Exploration, "Morocco"). An uncommon book, particularly so in the jacket. Nº de ref. de la librería 117438
