Boards lightly soiled, ink name and address on front endpaper. 1910 Hard Cover. xx, 380, [4] pp. 8vo. From 1831 to 1837, George Catlin traveled extensively among the native peoples of North America—from the Muskogee and Miccosukee Creeks of the Southeast to the Lakota, Mandan, and Pawnee of the West, and from the Winnebagos and Menominees of the North to the Comanches of eastern Texas. Studying their habits, customs, and modes of life, he made copious notes and numerous sketches of ceremonies, buffalo hunts, symbols, and totems. His two-volume set Illustrations of the Manners, Customs & Condition of the North American Indians, originally published in 1841, is still considered an authoritative work on the subject. This volume is condensed and adapted for a younger audience, and includes material drawn from his other works, sixteen plates from his original drawings, and a preface and biographical sketch of Catlin by editor Mary Gay Humphreys.
