About this Item

Deluxe Limited Edition. HISTORICAL AND STATISTICAL INFORMATION RESPECTING THE HISTORY, CONDITION AND PROSPECTS OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF THE UNITED STATES. An exclusive Deluxe Edition limited to just 600 hand-numbered copies. The six-volume edition from 1851 -1857, featuring over 300 vintage illustrations. In 1846, Congress commissioned pioneering ethnographer Henry Schoolcraft to create an encyclopedia on America’s Native Tribes. Recruiting the eager assistance of the renowned painter and illustrator of Indian life, General Seth Eastman, Schoolcra produced what remains one of the most comprehensive, important and irreplaceable accounts of Native American culture and life ever published. A massive sum, the equivalent today of over $750,000 per volume, was spent to publish Schoolcraft’s masterpiece in an edition as grand as his subject. Eastman’s precise and exquisitely executed illustrations — almost all based on his own frontier sketches — were entrusted to the finest printers and lithographers. Many illustrations were, at great expense, printed in full-color— and many were colored by hand in each copy of the book. Features include: 1. Six grand oversize 95/8" x 123/8" volumes — over 3,300 pages combined — bound in premium leather with traditional "hubbed" spines, and 22kt gold titles and cover design. 2. Henry Schoolcra ’s precious treasury of information on Native American history. 3. All of the illustrations included in the original six 1851-1857 volumes: over 320 plates and maps, most by Seth Eastman, 155 in color. 4. Pages Smyth-sewn into the bindings, luxurious acid-neutral archival-quality paper, traditional marbled endsheets, gilded page-ends and much, much more!. Bookseller Inventory # EP237
