Rhodesian Man and Associated Remains
By Pycraft, William P., Smith, G. Elliot et al.
Pp. xiii, 75, (1); 5 full page black-and-white photographs of the fossil remains of Rhodesian Man, each plate with a descriptive leaf of text. Publisher’s original green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, lg 4to (12.5 x 10 inches). “Homo rhodesiensis” is the species name proposed by Arthur Smith Woodward (1921) to classify Kabwe 1 (the "Kabwe skull" or "Broken Hill skull", also "Rhodesian Man"), a Middle Stone Age fossil recovered from a cave at Broken Hill, or Kabwe, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). “H. rhodesiensis” is now mostly considered a synonym of Homo heidelbergensis, or possibly an African subspecies of Homo heidelbergensis sensu lato, understood as a polymorphic species dispersed throughout Africa and Eurasia with a range spanning the Middle Pleistocene (c. 0.8–0.12 mya) (this is modified after Wiki). No ownership marks and few signs of use.
