About this Item

With a few illustrations including a portrait of the author. Copway, chief of the Ojibway American Indian tribe, wrote this book in response to his travels in Europe. While claiming it to be primarily a portrait of important men of the times in Europe, his observations go beyond that, giving a unique perspective to European culture as seen through the eyes of someone not accustomed to it. He also recounts the publicity that preceded his visits, by citing newspaper articles and captions, serving to capture European attitudes toward Native Americans at that time. Rather than a traditional travelogue, this book also gives voice to an often unheard from culture in America. In GOOD condition. Moderate soiling and darkening to the boards. Some scuffing. Moderate edgewear with some bumping and scuffing to the spine. The spine itself has rather heavy wear with darkening to the backstrip, heavy pulling to the head and foot of the spine—the foot being tattered and split along the front gutter for an inch and the back about ½ inch. Inner text clean and solid with previous owner’s name in pencil on the first front endpaper. Some darkening around the page edges and a four digit number written in pencil in the upper margin on page 338. Still a nice copy of this scarce piece of Americana in GOOD condition. [Sabin 16721].
