About this Item

"A popular account of that unparalled dramatic pagan ceremony of the Pueblo Indians of Tusayan, Arizona, with incidental mention of their life and customs." Cover chipped and w/frayed edges and back cover so nearly detached that I'm afraid to vouch for its condition by the time it reaches you. Former owner's name and 1901 date in pencil on ffep. Back end paper w/2 short tears (less than an inch long). Interior clean and tight. I would think the cover must be darkened quite a bit since printing since the central figure of the dancer and snake are very dark in color. Despite the fragility of the cover, all decorations/and the central figure are still intact. 58 pp. plus 2 map addendum: "Routes to the Moki Pueblos;" and "Santa Fe Route." Sorry for the mark-up folks, but I've seen an 1898 "Leslie's Weekly" advertisement for this book at 3 cents; and I have to charge you more than 116 times that amount just to ship the book to you. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001900

Shipping Terms:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days via the United States Postal Service.

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
