Published by Charles H. Kerr & Company some time between 1906-1909. Very rare edition in nice condition.From Wikipedia:Ancient Society is a book by the United States Anthropologist Lewis H. Morgan and published in 1877. It develops Morgan's theory of the three stages of human progress, i.e., from Savagery through Barbarism to Civilization. Contemporary European social theorists such as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were influenced by Morgan's work on social structure and material culture, as shown by Engels' The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State (1884).The dominant idea of Morgan's thought is that of progress.[1] He conceived it as a career of social states arranged in a scale on which man has worked his way up from the bottom. Progress is historically true of the entire human family, but not uniformly. Different branches of the family have evidenced human advancement to different conditions. He thought the scale had universal application or substantially the same in kind, with deviations from uniformity ... produced by special causes. Morgan hopes therefore to discern the principal stages of human development.
