I have this book in my collection and only just now realized how old this thing is. I never actually opened up and read it, but at a glance it's amazing how much they knew about different peoples in different places in 1874, and what was known about the history, geography and language history of people that is in there. Undoubted, much as been learned about race since then, as probably much is verboten and lost out of political correctness, but it doesn't read like a book ranking races as much as noting differences in size, stature, and simple observations that Africans have longer limbs and Asians have shorter limbs and flatter noses aren't easily found in modern books that don't seem to acknowledge any differences between races other than skin color. Surprised that there's no review on this book, it is actually an interesting read if you have an open mind, a lot of stuff in here that's probably still valid today that is overlooked as "race research" is itself an anachronism.
