Woman's Mysteries of a Primitive People is a book by D. Amaury Talbot, first published in 1915. This is an ethnography of the Iboibo, a Nigerian tribe, who are reputed to be one of the earliest inhabitants of the south southern Nigeria. It is estimated that they arrived at their present home around 7000 B.C. Written by a pioneering English woman in the early 20th Century, this book focuses on the ritual life of women, from birth, through childhood, marriage, and old-age. Despite the naïve colonialist attitude, it presents a female perspective which was seldom seen in the ethnographic literature of the period.

This book has 66,074 words, 107 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1915.
