Description:

This is a top notch offering: the book is NEW and MINT, as is its handsome DJ, which is now protected with a Mylar coverring. Aldona Jonaitis knows her stuff, and this work is both very illuminating and enchanting -- the Northwest Coast Indians were/are most proficient and imaginative in their creative expression, and this book details that most handsomely. Highly recommended. /// NO FINER COPY EXISTS. Size: Quatro. Bookseller Inventory # 003529

About this title:

Synopsis: From The Land Of The Totem Poles: The Northwest Coast Indian Art by Jonaitis, Aldona. 4to.

From Publishers Weekly: As the Northwest Coast Indian tribes fell victim to extermination and exploitation by white settlers, as well as to smallpox, venereal disease and alcoholism, acquisitive collectors and anthropologists rushed to British Columbia and Alaska, starting around 1880, to preserve the artistic remnants of a rapidly vanishing culture. Written by an art historian at State University of New York, this album focuses on how the American Museum of Natural History built its extensive Northwest Indian collection. The star performer is anthropologist Franz Boas, who challenged the negative stereotyping of Amerindians and championed their art. Boas attacked museum exhibitions that robbed native pieces of their social-cultural context, which, ironically, is a shortcoming to which this volume ultimately succumbs. For example, the text has a few brief, scattered references to totem poles. Among the first 200 first-rate illustrations are shamans' masks and charms as well as canoes and household objects made with rare artistry.
