About this Item

50pp extract, printed in double columns, illustrated with 37 drawings of archaeological interest, occasional pages including first page somewhat toned and foxed as noted in picture, salvaged from damaged issues of The Century Magazine, Volume XXV, Nos. 2 & 4, December, 1882, and February, 1883, and Volume XXVI, No. 1, May, 1883. The author's first-hand account of his four and a half years among the Zuni Indians of New Mexico. This is the first appearance of these pieces that were collected and published by the Peripatetic Press, Santa Fe, 1941, in an edition limited to 400 copies. It was later reprinted as well. From the opening paragraph, "One hot summer day in 1879, as I was sitting in my office in the ivy-mantled old South Tower of the Smithsonian Institution, a messenger boy tapped at my door, and said: 'Professor Baird wishes to see you, sir.' The professor, picking up his umbrella and papers, came toward the door as I entered. 'Haven't I heard you say you would like to go to New Mexico to study the cliff-houses and Pueblo Indians?' 'Yes, sir.' 'Very well then, be ready to accompany Colonel Stevenson's collecting party, as ethnologist, within four days. I want you to find out all you can about some typical tribe of Pueblo Indians.'" Housed in protective mylar report cover with spine sleeve. Bookseller Inventory # 018743
