About this Item: Clark Publishing Company, Evanston, IL, 1952. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Near Fine. see description and scan. Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1952. The June,1952 issue of Fate Magazine, Volume 5, Number 4, whole number Issue 28. A scarce issue in Raymond A. Palmer's now-legendary paranormal-reporting non-fiction enterprise, which began with, in its first issue, Kenneth Arnold's cover account of flying crescents which "skipped like saucers across a pond", an event which, for whatever reason, kicked off the modern era of UFO events. After that, Fate introduced countless events which remain, to this day, fodder for paranormal documentaries and investigation. 12mo, illustrated stapled wraps, 130 pp. Near Fine - in fact, very Near Fine, with no salient flaws whatsoever. Standard toning to the newsprint paper contents, and that's about it - and not much of that, given the nature of the paper. Pages supple. Very High grade condition for a periodical which often shows substantial wear from use. See scan. Uncredited cover art illustrates the lead article, "Is Your Future in the Cards?". Other featured topics include the Chaffin Will; the Cumberland County Poltergeist; a Talking Mongoose; Fairy Crosses; Stigmata; Reincarnation; the Desert Ice Cave; Mystery of the Mandans; and, as always, much, much more. Interior art and photography is largely uncredited. A piece of paranormal history, and an example of a unique branch of Americana, in very highly collectible condition. A particularly absorbing and very scarce issue. Please see scans. LT23. Seller Inventory # 60398

About this Item: Department of History, State of South Dakota, Pierre, South Dakota, 1932. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First edition. Edited with Historical Introduction and Notes by Annie Heloise Abel, Ph.D. Frontispiece, with a facsimile and a portrait. Pierre, South Dakota: Published under the auspices of Lawrence K. Fox, Superintendent, Department of History, State of South Dakota, 1932. First edition. Thirty years after Meriwether Lewis and William Clark passed through the Mandan villages in present-day North Dakota, the Upper Missouri River region was being plied by fur traders. In 1834 Francis A. Chardon, a churlish Philadelphian of French extraction, took charge of Fort Clark, a main post of the American Fur Company on the Upper Missouri. The journal that Chardon began that year offers a rare glimpse of daily life among the Mandan Indians, including the Arikaras, Yanktons, and Gros Ventres. In particular, it is a valuable and graphic record of the smallpox scourge that nearly destroyed the Mandans in 1837. Chardon describes much of historical interest, including such figures as the interpreter Charbonneau, Sacajawea's husband, and the fantastic James Dickson, "Liberator of all the Indians." Original red cloth binding, with gilt titles. Largely uncut. The spine is ever so slightly faded; otherwise an especially crisp and clean copy. Better than very good. Howes C-303.

About this Item: Chatto & Windus, [London, 1875. Lithograph, coloured by hand, printed by Day & Haghe, on later card mount. A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of Native American life. "The meeting represented here is something like that of an Archery Club in the civilized world, but for a different mode of shooting. Having but little necessity for correct shooting at a long distance.their hunting and warring being chiefly done from the backs of their running horses, the great merit in archery with them consists in the rapidity and force with which they can discharge their arrows from their bows: and the strife in this game.was to decide who could discharge from his bow the greatest number of arrows before his first one should fall to the ground; each arrow to pass over a certain line sufficiently distant to characterize it as a clean and efficient shot.I never beheld a more classic and beautiful group, nor a more graceful and gentlemanly rivalry than in the instance when I made the subjoined sketch; and on this occasion the young man represented in the attitude of shooting, succeeded in getting eight of his arrows on the wing at once, which I distinctly counted." Catlin summarized the Native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, -- yet honourable, contemplative and religious being." In a famous passage from the preface of his North American Indian Portfolio , Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian". He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, setting himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. From 1832 to 1837 he spent the summer months sketching the tribes and then finished his pictures in oils during the winter. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and also in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. A selection of the greatest of images from this record were published in the North American Indian Portfolio in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible. The present image is one of the results of this publishing venture and is both a work of art of the highest quality and a fitting memorial to a vanished way of life. Cf. William S.

About this Item: London, 1844. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. George Catlin (1794-1872) Illustrated plate from North American Indian Portfolio London: 1844-48 Hand-colored lithograph 16.5” x 22.5” paper size 27.5” x 33.5” framed In 1827, George Catlin, an illustrator from Philadelphia, became the first artist to attempt the perilous journey up the Missouri River, and the first to create visual records of his experiences traveling among the Plains Indians of North America. Catlin embarked upon his journey in the Spring of 1832, traveling from St. Louis up the Missouri on the steamboat Yellowstone to Fort Union, at the intersection of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers. It was a path that Karl Bodmer was also to follow just a year later, leading along a series of trading posts that served as a conduit for the furs and pelts brought down from the Rocky Mountains and channeled east. Catlin’s motivation was entirely unselfish and idealistic, and he labored unceasingly to persuade his contemporaries that Native American culture should be honored and preserved. The artist himself best expressed his goal in the preface to the first edition of his North American Indian Portfolio: “The history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian.” Catlin’s project filled a great need. After Lewis & Clark’s celebrated expedition up the Missouri River into the Pacific Northwest, Europeans read avidly of the sights and experiences of the voyage. They traced the route followed by the explorers, using the map that accompanied the wildly popular printed volumes on the journey. But a crucial aspect was missing from the accounts of the expedition of Lewis and Clark. Without pictorial documentation, Europeans (and Americans) were unable to visualize the all-but-unbelievable journey. This lack meant that the people, landscape, and customs of the vast American frontier remained abstract ideas -- and much less vividly imaginable -- to anyone who had not personally experienced the voyage. When Catlin first issued his volume in 1844, his animated, colorful, sympathetic views of Native Americans finally filled the void of imagery. Suddenly, Europeans and Americans were able to visualize the people and customs of whom they had read so extensively, and to gain a level of respect for the Native Americans, so often feared, misunderstood or misrepresented. Catlin’s work endeavors to tell the story of the Plains Indians in a logical, graphic way that is not evident in the works of artists and publishers who followed in his footsteps, most notably Bodmer and McKenney & Hall. Catlin introduces the viewer to three important tribes from different geographical areas (Pawnee, Osage, and Iroquois) in the first image; the second illustration presents the buffalo, the animal on which the Plains Indians depended for survival. Next, Catlin depicts the wild horses on the Plains, the manner in which the Indians broke them, and finally how the Indians used the horses to pursue the buffalo. The two main methods of killing the buffalo, with a lance and with a bow, are demonstrated in the subsequent print. The danger of the buffalo hunt follows, including an illustration of the Mandan buffalo dance. The effort to tell a story about the culture of the Plains Indians continues throughout the North American Indian Portfolio, in which Catlin sought to present Indian culture and activities from the Indian standpoint.

About this Item: London, 1845. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. George Catlin. A selection from the North American Indian Portfolio: London, 1845. Hand-colored lithograph. Paper size 15 ¾" x 22 ¾". Condition: Margins of paper slightly darkened, some minute areas of foxing not affecting main image. In 1827, George Catlin, an illustrator from Philadelphia, became the first artist to attempt the perilous journey up the Missouri River, and the first to create visual records of his experiences traveling among the Plains Indians of North America. Catlin embarked upon his journey in the Spring of 1832, traveling from St. Louis up the Missouri on the steamboat Yellowstone to Fort Union, at the intersection of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers.

Catlin’s work endeavors to tell the story of the Plains Indians in a logical, graphic way that is not evident in the works of artists and publishers who followed in his footsteps, most notably Bodmer and McKenney & Hall. Catlin tells a story about the culture of the Plains Indians throughout the North American Indian Portfolio from the Indian standpoint. Catlin appealed to his readers with the thrill of the hunt and the mystery of ritual, and conveyed his respect for his subjects masterfully. The immediacy of his images is irresistible, drawing viewers into the scenes and portraits with unprecedented intimacy. When Catlin issued the North American Indian Portfolio, not even fifteen years after his expedition, his crusade to preserve America’s “Noble Savage” was failing. The Indians were beginning to give way to the expansion of the American frontier and to European disease. Because most of Catlin’s paintings and collections were destroyed by fire and neglect, his lithographs remain the principal medium by which his message was conveyed, they have come to hold even greater significance today than when they were first published.

About this Item: J.B. Lippincott & Co, Philadelphia, 1867. Octavo. (10 x 6 3/4 inches). Half-title. 13 coloured lithographic plates by Simonau & Toovey, all after Catlin. Minor foxing. Publisher's green cloth, upper cover blocked in gilt, expertly rebacked with green cloth First American edition of one of the rarest works by the noted painter of American Indians: this is Catlin's last major publication. Catlin's account of O-Kee-Pa, or Buffalo Dance, a controversial Mandan religious ceremony, is of particular importance as he witnessed the sexually-charged and barbaric dance first hand shortly before the upper Missouri tribe was decimated by a small pox epidemic in 1837. Catlin here gives a full account of the ceremony, illustrating the rituals and self-tortures of the Buffalo dance in thirteen beautifully executed colour lithographs. An unauthorized account of the ceremony was privately circulated by the Philobiblon Society in 1865, prompting several, including Henry Schoolcraft, to question Catlin's descriptions. Thus, Catlin published the present work, and included within a letter by Prince Maximilian Wied zu Wied, who visited the Mandan with Karl Bodmer, though did not witness the ceremony first hand. The explicit details of the sexual elements of the ceremony were considered too shocking for the general public and were included in a very rare separately-issued three-page "Folium Reservatum," purportedly issued in an edition of approximately 25 copies (not present here, as usual). Bennett p.22; Field 262; Howes C244,"b"; McCracken Catlin pp.101-108; Pilling 693. Seller Inventory # 34942
