  • Notes of the Society, Correction 269

As the author observes in his earlier study on Geophagy (Field Museum of Natural History, Pub. 280, p. 101), "the days are gone when the discussion of a problem started with the Greeks and Romans whose importance in the history of civilization is not much greater than, and in many respects inferior to, that of the Asiatic nations."
