Item Description: Published in Association with the American Museum of Natural History by Outerbridge & Lazard, New York, 1972. Hardcover. First edition. 176pp. Oblong folio [37.5 cm x 46 cm] 1/4 black cloth with photographically illustrated paper over boards. Good only. The covers are concave, and a binder has supplied a new front free endsheet and partial front pastedown. A. D. Coleman writes, "To be sure, Curtis had several advantages over the photographers who preceded him in the nineteenth century. His equipment was somewhat more sophisticated than theirs had been (though that alone hardly accounts for the qualitative differences.) He had more time for- or, to be accurate, devoted more time to- studying his subject in the field. He had access to the work of his predecessors, so that he could learn from their limitations and oversights, and had access as well to a far larger body of historical and ethnographic information about the Indians than did any previous photographer.".

Item Description: Promontory Press, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket as Issued. Curtis, Edward S. (illustrator). First Thus. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. There are several smaller and many less expensive versions of North American Indian photographs by Edward S. Curtis (b. 1869, d. 1952). This publication is rather special for its size, quality of photographic printing, and expert textual commentary. The book's size is approximately 15" high x 19" wide, an elephant folio. There are 83 full page, beautifully printed sepia toned images, carefully selected from the available Curtis archives and international holdings. Almost all other photographic reproductions of his work were notably bad, according to A. D. Coleman (pp. v-vii), who provides a fascinating history of the Curtis legacy and its importance to contemporary understanding of the vanished North American Indian's life. Curtis documented Indian life for more than 30 years, living among many tribes, resulting in excess of 40,000 images. T. S. McLuhan's introduction (pp. viii-ix) dwells on the man and his working methods, and notes the priceless anthropological value of his images, in addition to their obvious artistic and aesthetic qualities. There are precious few copies of the Promontory Press publication available. The North American Indians that Curtis portrayed and their life style are now vanished. His work, monumental as it is, will leave the viewer wishing for more and hopeful that people everywhere will be exposed to the photographer's legacy to humankind. Each of the selected photographs is displayed in full size on the book's right hand page with a short label. Detailed captions for each grouping are found in a prefatory legend (pp.xiii-xv), with comments taken from the photographer's personal impressions as based on his field notes and annotations of specific pictures. Promontory Press acquired the rights to reprint an earlier imprint by Outerbridge and Lazard, Inc. (1972) and later the property of Dutton, a division of New American Library. It is a first edition thus. There is an area of foxing on the first free end paper and scattered foxing on the outer page edges. There is a small area of outer edge roughness on the rear board (touched up by a previous owner, quite unobtrusive), and a small bump on the spine heel. The rear board exterior also has a tiny nick and rubs. The book is unmarked and clean inside. 176 pages. There is an occasional whiff of storage scent. Sorry, but for international customers, due to size and weight, there will be a substantial additional handling and shipping expense for this book, the amount to be determined and agreed upon to prior to shipping.

Item Description: Outerbridge & Lazard : New York, 1972. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Published by Outerbridge & Lazard, 1972; Published in Association with the American Museum of Natural History; distributed by Dutton. First edition, first printing. Condition: G+/no dj. Oversized heavy oblong folio, approx. 15x18 inches. (International shipping available at actual cost.) Pictorial hardboards (Canon De Chelly - Navajo) with black cloth spine; metallic copper printing front and spine; some bumping and light fraying to corners and spine ends. One-inch split at bottom spine affects cloth only; does not affect binding. Area of sun-fading to upper third of book front and back. Textblock clean, square, lightly foxing on edges; tightly bound with no splitting, except ffep is separating from the mull at the bottom edge (this does not affect the strength or integrity of the binding.) 176 pp. illustrated with 81 full-page prints of Curtis' sepia-tone photographs. Still a very handsome, important book; collector's quality. Packaged with care and shipped in a box to arrive in best condition. Complete satisfaction guarantee; no sale is final until you are satisfied. The 81 sepia prints contained within are near-full-size images of part of Curtis's monumental work of 2500 photographs. His immense project, while well-known, was not widely viewed before his death, because the size of the original sets were so large that they quickly disappeared into rare book rooms and institutions, out of easy reach even for scholars. The publication of this size of book made Curtis available for view by the larger audience. 'Portraits of The North American Indian' will probably come to be recognized as the most profound document of pure Indian culture ever made. Bookseller Inventory # 080928-2
