Book Description University of Texas Press, Austin, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. xiv+239 pages with 16 plates, including frontispiece, photographs, table, figure, 7 maps, bibliography and index. Folio (12 1/4" x9 1/2") issued in beige with brown lettering to spine. Paintings by Forrest Kirkland. Reissue of the first edition of 1967. In The Rock Art of Texas Indians, Kirland's meticulous water color copies of this rich and diversified art are reproduced, 32 in full color, the rest in black and white. The Informative and engaging text is contributed by W W Newcomb, Jr, former director of the Texas Memorial Museum and author of The Indians of Texas. Those early Indians, at different times and places and in a variety of styles, carved and painted their art from Paint Rock in West Central Texas to the canyons of the Big Bend, from the Canadian River Valley in the Panhandle to the Hueco Tanks near El Paso. As the form for this art varied, so too were the reasons for it execution. Much rock art was no doubt born of magical and religious beliefs, or served to illustrate myths, but some apparently commemorated actual events and some seems to have been only tallies or messages. Kirkland recorded it all with consummate skill, preserving for other generations, as he said he would, the often remarkable, always fascinating art of vanished people. The petroglyphs and pictographs reproduced here, states Newcomb, "are relatively rare and absolutely irreplaceable human documents. They can often reveal much about the ways of ancient men, including aspects of life which otherwise would forever go unrecorded, for they may illustrate how a vanished, nameless people perceived themselves and their world, their relation to God and to each other, and their fantasies and fears. They are, then, a treasure to be valued and a heritage to be preserved." Condition: An fine copy in like jacket. Bookseller Inventory # A1085
