Hardcover with dust jacket both in Fine (FN) condition. No flaws.
The indelible portraits of Native Americans by Edward S. Curtis, made at the dawn of the twentieth century, have become among the most avidly collected, published, and sought-after emblems of early encounters with American Indian life. And yet existing publications have just begun to suggest the extent of this remarkable photographic achievement. This book collects one hundred of his most compelling photographs of tribal leaders and warriors. Some 40 percent of the photographs presented here are either very little known or previously unpublished.
