1 Bachofen, Johann J. Myth, Religion, and Mother Right: Selected Writings of J.J. Bachofen
Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A. Bollingen Foundation 1992 0691017972 / 9780691017976 Paperback Very Good 
Clean book. Very minor shelf wear. Front gutter has minor yellow over glue from spine, that does not affect the book in any way. Stated first printing. The central part is the investigation of the religious and juridical character of Matriarchy in the Ancient World- a theme that is inseparably linked with the name of Bachofen. His thought that 'the progress from the maternal to the parental conception of man forms the most important turning point in the history of the relations between the sexes' is still echoing in anthropology."Trade Paperback.
