48 p. + 42 p. of b&w plates printed on glossy paper. Tuberculosis probably did not occur among Native Americans before contact with whites. It presented [and still presents] a grave threat to the American Indians, and also a more general threat as "civilization" came ever more to native lands. This study was conducted in the summer of 1908, and consisted of visits to the Menominee, Oglala Sioux, Quinaielt, Hupa, and Mohave tribes. Photographs are of the dwellings and people of these tribes. Olive green cloth hard cover, octavo (9" x 6"), fine. Bookseller Inventory # 70029
