RARE AUTOGRAPH PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY GEO. CATLIN. We can find only one other copy of this book to have appeared in recent times--the Manney-Silver copy sold some years ago in the rooms. Printed at a later date as ADVENTURES OF THE OJIBBEWAY AND IOWAY INDIANS IN ENGLAND, FRANCE, AND BELGIUM.... The publishing of these volumes celebrated the opening of Catlin's Indian Gallery in London.
" Catlin visited forty-eight tribes in the Mississippi and Missouri valleys and on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains during his eight years' travel. His object was to paint portraits of men and women in every tribe, together with views of villages, games, etc." The work was published as in 1841 as THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS: Being Letters and Notes on Their Manners, Customs, and Conditions, Written During Eight Years’ Travel Amongst the Wildest Tribes of Indians in North America, 1832-1839. One of the most famous of all books on the North American native Americans, it was reprinted throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and like the present work remains highly collectable and a cornerstone work in American history.
