About this Item

2 volumes. First Printing of Volume I and the second of Volume II. The books do not differ in size or presentation and are a matching set. Both volumes have been partnered since they were presented by Catlin to the recipient. VERY RARE PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED IN BOTH VOLUMES BY CATLIN IN THE YEAR OF PUBLICATION, 1848. With 24 plates after drawings by the author. 8vo, bound in the original blue cloth lettered with pictorial decorations on the upper covers in gilt and on the rear covers in blind, the borders stamped in arabesque designs, the spines lettered in gilt. xvi, xvi, 296 [including Opinions, Appendix and Catalogue of the Collection; xii, 336. An exceptionally rare presentation copy. A fine and as pristine copy internally, partially unopened, the bindings tight and clean, but with spines sympathetically replaced at a later date and the upper cover of Vol. II replaced to match. 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.
