MEN OF THE OLD STONE AGE
By HENRY FAIRFIELD OSBORN
President of the American Museum of Natural History
THEODORE ROOSEVELT says: "I regard your book as one
of the real contributiono to productive American scholarship."
This extremely readable volume promises to be the most important and
complete work on human evolution which has appeared since Darwin's "De
scent of Man," for the reason that it is the first full and authoritative presen
tation of what has actually been discovered up to the present time in regard to
All the known prehuman and human stages of development for the last
five hundred thousand years are described as fully and fairly as the material
allows. As soon as enduring remains of warlike and industrial life begin to ap
pear, namely about one hundred and twenty-five thousand years ago, the author
traces every step in man's economic and social evolution, and, finally, all the
known stages of artistic endeavor.
It is written in the lucid and easy style which has made the author's earlier
philosophic work, "From the Greeks to Darwin," a standard reference for the
early history of the theory of evolution.
