About this Item

8vo. Half black calf and black cloth over boards, gilt spine. 640pp. Engraved title page (titled "The Indian Races of North and South America") with hand-colored engraving, numerous illustrations (many hand colored). Very good. Binding a bit edgeworn, with leather portions rough, and outer hinges just a tad delicate, but overall a clean, nice copy. Internally quite nice -- tight and clean. 19th century bookplate on front pastedown. Later printing of this 1853 study, noted for its ample hand-colored plates. Brownell (1822-1909) was a Connecticut attorney turned painter, well known for landscapes and seascapes; this is his only book. Bookseller Inventory # 33067
