Czaplicka, M. A. [Marie Antoinette], d. 1921  
The Turks of Central Asia in History and at the present day. An ethnological inquiry into the Pan-Turanian problem...

Publisher: Mansfield Centre, CT: Martino Pub., 2005.
242 p., folding map, index; 24 cm. Title continues: "and bibliographical material relating to the early Turks and the present Turks of Central Asia / by M. A. Czaplicka." Reprint of the 1st ed.: Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1918. Since her death in 1921, the celebrated Polish anthropologist Marya Antonina Czaplicka's life and works have retained a remarkable contemporary significance. A woman in the man's world of Oxford anthropology, she fought her way to acceptance as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Anthropological Institute. Fluent in Russian, she revealed the exotic realms of the Siberian indigenous peoples and shamanism through her pioneering work in Aboriginal Siberia. Her account of her year in Siberia leading the 1914 Oxford University expedition, "My Siberian Year," provides a fascinating evocation of Siberian life on the eve of World War I. Czaplicka was an early advocate for autonomy for Russian Siberia and complete democratic independence for Poland, and wrote perceptively on the Turks in Central Asia, the Cossacks, and Russian folklore.

Olufsen, O. (Ole), 1865-1929.  
The Emir Of Bokhara And His Country / Journeys And Studies In Bokhara (With A Chapter On My Voyage On The Amu Darya To
 Picture
Publisher: Mansfield Center, CT : Martino Pub., 2009..
ix, 599 p., [1] folded leaf of plates : illus., map, index, 26 cm. Bukhara, also transliterated Bukhoro and Bokhara, is the capital of the Bukhara Province of Uzbekistan. The region around Bukhara has been inhabited for at least five millennia and the city itself has existed for half that time. Located on the Silk Road, the city has long been a center of trade, scholarship, culture, and religion. The historic center of Bukhara, which contains numerous mosques and madrassas, has been listed by UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Sites. Olufsen’s travel narrative, originally published in 1911, contains an exhaustive and well-balanced account of Bokhara based on observations during two journeys. The country is described under three headings, Mountain Bokhara, Steppe Bokhara and Desert Bokhara. The style is in part descriptive and in part narrative. In addition to the chapters mentioned, there are valuable accounts of the climate, the vegetation and animals, the inhabitants, diseases and all the facts in the life of the community with which the anthropologist deals. The chapter on climate, taken in connection with that on disease, is especially interesting. Profusely illustrated with hundreds of black and white photographs, as well as a large folding map in the pocket. Stock# 1105x. Fine, new from publisher / no dj as issued.
