About this Item

010912: Covers and pages are clean, unmarked, bright, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Contains 72 line illustrations, including 17 plates of patterns and 12 diagrams. 16 carvings illustrated in color on covers. "Long before the discovery of the New World, the Indian and Inuit peoples of North America were carving and using fish decoys. Skillfully crafted of bone, shell or wood, the decoys effectively lured fish within spearing distance. Later, the idea caught on among white settlers, who developed their own fish-spearing and decoy-carving tradition. Today, antique fish decoys are popular collectibles." Scarce, Out Of Print, Book.
