Title: The Land of Poco Tiempo.
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, New York
Publication Date: 1925
8vo. Brick cloth with gilt lettering and black and yellow decorative stamping. xii, 310pp. Frontispiece, illustrations. Very good. Almost, but not quite, rates "Near fine," as it's tight 'n' bright and lovely, with just the lightest bit of edgewear. Exceptionally tight and striking later printing of this early (1893) Lummis effort, a compilation of Native American and Southwest lore and tales, superbly illustrated. Picture the nicest copy of this title you've seen, then bump it up a notch -- that's this copy. Lummis (1859-1928) was a bizarre and prolific historian, journalist, ethnographer, photographer, poet, librarian, Indian Rights activist and archaeologist. Quite uncommon in this killer condition.
