for Spring, 1997. Original printed wrappers. A special double issue entirely devoted to Spirit Cave Man, excavated by Sydney Wheeler in 1940 near Fallon, Nevada. Wheeler gave an age of 1500 to 2000 years for the mummy. Then, in 1994, Amy Dansie opened the mummy's box, stored at the Nevada State Museum, and noticed an associated textile that she thought looked much older than the accepted date. Radiocarbon tests pushed the age back to about 9400 years. Here, too, is a discussion of the anthropometry of these people, more caucasoid than mongoloid; they may have been more closely related to the Ainu than the Amerindian population. A Fine copy.
