Item Description: Dover Publications Inc., New York, 1973. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Dover Edition. 264 Pages. This is Volume One of Two. No defects noted and the interior text and illustration pages are bright and tight. This Dover edition, first published in 1973, is an unabridged republication of the work first published in London in 1844. This edition contains an introduction by Marjorie Halpin, which was first published in 1965 by The Smithsonian Institution in Catlin's Indian Gallery-The George Catlin Paintings in the United States National Museum. This edition contains both the complete text and photographic reproductions of 257 of Catlin's original oil paintings. The artist-author had prepared these oils over a period of years expressly to illustrate his written report. The first edition of the work was issued with simple line cuts or cartoons derived from the original paintings, photography then still being in its infancy. The first edition line illustrations have been retained here only where the corresponding oil painting was not found or never existed. The plate numbers in this book are the numbers that Catlin assigned to each illustration in the original edition of the work. In many cases these plate numbers are not consecutive, and some numbers are skipped entirely. Today most authorities refer to Catlin paintings by the number which Catlin assigned to his works in 1840 when he prepared a catalog of the exhibits in his Indian Gallery. Also indicated are Catlin Catalog Numbers in the list of plates. Size: 6" x 9". Bookseller Inventory # 18873

Item Description: The Author, London, 1841. Half calf on marbled boards. Book Condition: Poor. First Edition. viii & 266 pages plus two maps and 190 illustrations on 109 plates, 46 being full-page (though two are assigned three illustration numbers - the plates are not numbered although the illustrations are). Bound in contemporary half calf, but lacking the spine and with the boards detached. This volume lacks the illustrations numbered 137, 142, 149, 159, 246, 247 and 253. 311 is badly damaged and the leaf for pages 111-112 is lacking. The Appendix on pages 257 258 is misbound between illustration 312 and page 249. Many of the plates are a bit thumbed or foxed, but not irredeemably so. Dare I suggest that the plates in this copy seem good candidates for washing and colouring? Please note this is Vol II only. Size: 6¼" x 9¾" (160mm x 245mm). Bookseller Inventory # 008458

Item Description: John Grant, Edinburgh, Scotland, 1903. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. Complete in two (2) volumes, uniformly bound in dark red ribbed cloth, elaborately illus./lettered in gilt and black on front covers and spine panels, top text block edges in gilt. Modest shelf wear with some rubbing evident at corners and spine extremities. Moisture contact has resulted in dye lightening (to a light pinkish-red) at the following points: (Vol. I) top front corner and along most of top front edge, top rear corner and upper rear cover, including upper rear fore-edge; (Vol. II) lower front corner, including lower portions of stamped decoration, lower rear cover. The dye has bled onto (Vol. I) the top corners of front pastedown and the first several leaves, (Vol. II) the bottom corners of front pastedown and flyleaf, and the first several and the last several leaves. Beyond this issue, which is entirely cosmetic, both volumes display only modest actual wear and do not display dampstaining per se, with light puckering to cloth at several points. Former owner signature on front flyleaf of Vol. I, front pastedown of Vol. II. Endpapers of both volumes modestly toned/foxed, interiors otherwise clean and fully intact beyond dye discolorations already noted. Bindings slightly shaken but generally firm. xi,298 + xii,304 pp., w/ 400 illustrations, "carefully engraved from the author's original paintings," color folding map at p. 1 of Vol. I. Cosmetically evaluated as Good only due to moisture blemishes, otherwise VG or better with no substantial condition issues; a conservative restoration could match the dye color and significantly improve overall appearance at minimal cost and effort. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 029520

George Catlin (1796-1872) an American painter and chronicler of the indigenous Americans, started his professional life as a lawyer but in 1821 abandoned his legal practice and moved to Philadelphia to pursue a career as an artist. He was elected a member of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1824. In 1830, after President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act forcibly expelling all indigenous inhabitants to the east of the Mississippi, Catlin began painting in the western United States to try to record every indigenous tribe before "their passing from the face of the Earth". He made five trips between 1830 and 1836, eventually visiting fifty tribes. When Catlin returned east in 1838, he assembled the paintings and numerous artifacts into his Indian Gallery which exhibited in major cities such as Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and New York. Initially sucessful in this enterprise he attempted to sell his collection to the U.S. government; however the United States Congress rejected his petition to purchase the works. In 1839 Catlin took his collection across the Atlantic for a tour of European capitals. While in London he published 'Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians' in 1841 of which this third edition was published the following year.

Item Description: Published by the Author, London, 1841. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. George Catlin engravings (illustrator). First edition. Octavos, 264, 266pp., 19th C red half morocco, edgeworn, extra gilt spines, 1 board tender. [Howes C241; Wagner-Camp-Becker 84:1; Sabin 11536; not in Field's Indian bibliography ]. Uncited variant: This edition was printed by "W. and A.K. Johnston, printers, Edinburgh and London." I have not found another copy so described, nor are the maps identified as being engraved by Tosswill & Myers; also, this does not have the mistake of "Frederick" for "Zedekiah" on p.104. Note: the collation appears to match the Siebert copy ( Siebert Catalogue of 1999, vol.2, no. 838) altho I count 75+102= 177 leaves of plates, not 176, plus the 3 maps (one folding in v.1). William Clark, the famed co-explorer, and later the Indian Agent headquartered in St. Louis, testified that, "I have seen Mr. Catlin's Collection of Portraits of Indians, east of the Rocky Mountains, many of which were familiar to me, and painted in my presence: and as far as they have included Indians of my acquaintance, the likenesses are easily recognized, baring the most striking resemblances to the originals, as well as faithful representations of their costumes." Illustrated with George Catlin's engravings. Bookseller Inventory # DEMO016689I

Howes C241. Sabin 11537: 'his plates are now in the gallery of the New York Historical Society'. Streeter sale 1805. Wagner 84. Catlin's book became a classic description of the Indians of North America, based on this careful observations and considerable time spent living with the tribes he described. First published in 1841, with uncolored plates, although about a dozen copies had plates hand colored, the first edition with colored plates (chromolithographs) was 1876, this being the second edition with colored plates. Although 1841 is on the title page with no other dates printed in the book, the actual date of publication was c1890, according to some references. Early editions with color plates are quite scarce. According to Field 260 (Indian Bibliography, p63), the copies with color plates 'are still, however, held at nearly ten times the price of the plain copies'. The 313 colored illustrations on 180 plates are all present and consistent with Sabin and other references, despite numbering irregularities. The reference to 400 coloured plates on the title pages seems to be an advertising ploy, no copy or edition, having been issued with this number. A picture of this book is available on request.

Gilt text on flat spine. Top edge gilt. , A scarce copy with plates 113 and 114 present. This copy does not contain the errata slip. Catlin began his journey in 1830 when he accompanied General William Clark on a diplomatic mission up the Mississippi River into Native American territory. St. Louis became Catlin?s base of operations for five trips he took between 1830 and 1836, eventually visiting fifty tribes. Two years later he ascended the Missouri River more than 3000 km to Fort Union Trading Post, near what is now the North Dakota-Montana border, where he spent several weeks among indigenous people who were still relatively untouched by European civilization. He visited eighteen tribes, including the Pawnee, Omaha, and Ponca in the south and the Mandan, Hidatsa, Cheyenne, Crow, Assiniboine, and Blackfeet to the north. There he produced the most vivid and penetrating portraits of his career. During later trips along the Arkansas, Red, and Mississippi rivers, as well as visits to Florida and the Great Lakes, he produced more than 500 paintings and gathered a substantial collection of artifacts.George Catlin (1796 ? 1872) was an American painter, author, and traveler who specialized in portraits of Native Americans in the Old West. Travelling to the American West five times during the 1830s, Catlin was the first white man to depict Plains Indians in their native territory.

Item Description: Wiley and Putnam, 1841. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First American edition. Octavo. Frontispiece; with four hundred illustrations engraved by Tosswill & Myers, carefully engraved from his original paintings; three maps, one folding. Appendices. Errata sheet tipped in. Original brown cloth, gilt stamped on the spines; blind ruling and scrolling designs. Very good, tight and clean. 2 volumes. Bookplate and ink signature of James Henry McHenry on both volumes. Volume I - 264 pages. Volume II - 266 pages. The errata sheet reads: "Although it may appear to the reader, from the absence of numbers, that there are several of the illustrations wanting, yet he will find that all the plates referred to in the text, are in the book , and in their places, as the author designed them, and the work therefore complete." Howes maintains that the first British and first American editions lacked the plates numbered 23, 137, 142, 149, 159, 246, 247, and that there were added plates numbered 101 1/2, 210 1/2, and three unnumbered plates. This copy follows Howes, however plates number 1 and 2 are lacking. Also, plates 62, 252, and 271/272 are out of sequence. The plates are engravings after drawings Catlin made of his own paintings from his tour of North America (from 1832 to 1829) when he visited, according to his records, forty-eight tribes. While in England, Catlin began work on his book, preparing the images for the engraver and editing his field notes for the text, which was presented as a series of letters.

"Catlin visited forty-eight tribes in the Mississippi and Missouri valleys and on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains during his eight years' travel. His object was to paint portraits of men and women in every tribe, together with views of villages, games, etc. The two volumes are a series of fifty-eight letters written while the author was among the Indians. They form an unusually entertaining narrative of travels in an almost unknown region, and at the same time are of great value in their descriptions of Indian life" (Larned 616).
