MAN AND THE SUN Jacquetta Hawkes. Cresset Press, London. 1962 First edition. 280pp Illustrated Hardback. Jacquetta Hawkes (5 August 1910 - 18 March 1996) was a British archaeologist. Born Jessie Jacquetta Hopkins, the daughter of Nobel Prize-winning scientist, Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins, she married first Christopher Hawkes, then an Assistant Keeper at the British Museum, in 1933. From 1953, she was married to J.B. Priestley. She is perhaps best known generally for her book A Land (1951). She was a prolific writer on subjects quite removed from her principal field. She was above all interested in discovering the lives of the peoples revealed by scientific excavations. That the sun is the father of mankind is more than analogy, for it is the energy in its rays that has made possible the generation and development of life on earth. In this book the author goes back to the birth of the planetary system and then examines the relationship that existed between men and their solar father from the days of the first hunters to the invention of the hydrogen bomb. This copy is from the files of the Cresset Press and both the dustwrapper and the f.e.p. has been stamped 'File Copy'. Bound in original green linen covered boards with a black and gilt device to the front and titling to the spine and this is in FINE condition. The dustwrapper which is unclipped has a circular hole to the front with an innovative clear cellophane window which, for its time, was a first and the method of attaching the cellophane has resulted in some wrinkling to the front panel.
