Item Description: Promontory Press, New York, 1972. Hardcover. Book Condition: g to g+. First edition. Oblong folio. XVIpp (text), 176pp (88 leaves of plates). Original half cloth over photo-illustrated paper covered boards. Beginning in 1900 and continuing over the next thirty years, Edward Sheriff Curtis, or the "Shadow Catcher" as he was later called by some of the tribes, took over 40,000 images and recorded rare ethnographic information from over eighty American Indian tribal groups, ranging from the Eskimo or Inuit people of the far north to the Hopi people of the Southwest. He captured the likeness of many important and well-known Indian people of that time, including Geronimo, Chief Joseph, Red Cloud, Medicine Crow and others. "Portraits From North American Indian Life" beautifully documents all aspects of a marvelous culture that was on the brink of destruction. The spirit of Native American life is covered in great depth and with remarkable sensitivity to the connections between them, but the most remarkable segments of this text are the portraits. Like no other photographer before him, Edward Curtis attempts to capture the essence of these people and shows you what it is to walk along their great land. Filled with 88 full-page sepia tone photographs and detailed text, "Portraits From North American Indian Life" is a beautiful and historical reference for all to enjoy. Binding rubbed along edges. Closed tear at tail of spine. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good+, plates in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37668

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: 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
