Na roda do Batuque ("In the circle of the Batuque")

Lisbon: Livraria Bertrand, 1933. 227p., worn wraps have some edge chipping. Photograph of ecstatic African dancer adorns front cover. Batuque is a somewhat broadly applied term referring to dance rituals associated with cults in Angola, Mozambique and neighboring countries, as well as among Afro-Brazilians. The book is a discussion of Portuguese rule over these areas, rather than a treatise on the dance itself. Text in Portuguese. Former owner's rubber stamp on title page.
