About this Item

Oblong 4to. 11.25 x 7.25 in. [50 pp (unpaginated)], thick black paper stock, w/ 19 original silver gelatin, and Real Photo Postcards tipped-in with black corners, most with pencil annotations on verso; 9 photos by Dixon are 6.5 x 8.5 in.; the rest sized from 3.75 x 4.5 in., 3.5 x 5.5 in. up to 5 x 7.25 in. (a couple photos with very slight tear & chip to corners). Contemporary embossed pebbled black cloth post-binder, gilt lettering on front cover, black silk braid bound at gutter margin (minor shelfwear, slight rubbing), an excellent exemplar, with images having great contrast and crispness. This amazing photo album begins with nine stunning original photographs of Crow Indian Chiefs taken by Dixon (1856-1926), during the second expedition when he traveled to the Crow Reservation where he had organized an Indian Council at the Crow Agency gathering fifty chiefs from U.S. Reservations, and known as the Last Great Indian Council. There are two images of Chief The Bread (b. 1863), an Apsaroke-Crow chief, Mountain Crow of the Whistle Water clan, whose first war experience under Young Wolf Calf captured a 100 horses from the Piegan; Hairy Moccasin (ca. 1854-1922) (known as Esup-ewyshes) a noted Crow scout for Custer's 7th Cavalry, who stands in front of a tent holding a large sheathed knife in his hand, and was survivor of the Battle of the Little Big Horn; White Man Runs Him (1858-1929), another Custer scout who survived Little Big Horn; Chief Medicine Crow (ca. 1848-1920), with hair in braids, feathers, beads hanging down, and wrapped in blanket, fought with General Crook at the Battle of the Rosebud with Chief Plenty Coups, joined the U.S. Cavalry against the Nez Perces in 1877, and later opposed selling any of the Crow lands; Chief Plenty Coups (1848-1932), principal chief of the Mountain Crow (Apsaalooke), a visionary leader, who was responsible for guiding the Crow nation to work with Custer and the 7th cavalry, and managed to preserve much of the original Crow lands; as well as Chief Wolf Lies Down, Chief Grayhair, and one unidentified. The rest of the images include a photo of an American Indian Chief in full ceremonial headdress astride a horse by Marcell, son of Milward B. "Doc" Marcell of Marcell Studios -- best known for the 1912 Calgary Stampede Photo postcards -- operated Doc's in-and-out film processing shop in Vancouver, WA; another of a standing Chief with trailing headdress holding a pipe by Richard Brouhard, whose Elite Studio was founded in 1925, and later taken over by Everett Olmstead; an image of teepees on the plains; and many more. The two photos of Northwest Coast Indian baskets, artifacts, and weavings are very nice, including one of an early exhibit of Northwest Coast weavings, raven masks, woven hat, wood carvings, and more.
