About this Item: No Binding. Condition: Very Good. A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph with beautiful original color from Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall's historically significant book "History of the Indian Tribes of North America", which was published in Philadelphia in 1836. Sha-ha-ka was a chief of a lower Mandan village. He was a jovial man who was much disliked among the Indians for talking too much. He accompanied Lewis and Clark on their expedition, helping them complete their Western Map. His name means "Big White". This print is from the smaller octavo edition and measures 10.25"x6.75"". Originally this breathtaking series was issued in large folio size, but later McKenney had the images redrawn to a more practical and affordable octavo size.The majority of these octavos are from the early editions (1842-58), published either by J.T. Bowen or D. Rice & A.N. Hart. Those noted as "RR" were issued by Rice, Rutter & Co. between 1865 and 1870. From 1816 until 1830, Thomas McKenney was Superintendent of Indian Affairs and one of a very few government officials to defend American Indian interests. When a large delegation of Indians came to see President Monroe in 1821, McKenney commissioned the fashionable portraitist Charles Bird King to paint the principal delegates, dressed in costumes of their choice. Many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century were among King’s sitters, including Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. The portraits hung in the War Department until l858, when they were moved to the Smithsonian Institute. Most of King’s original portraits were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian in 1865, so their appearance in McKenney and Hall’s publication is the only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century: Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola were numbered among King’s sitters. Andrew Jackson dismissed McKenney in 1830, but allowed him to have the portraits copied by Henry Inman, so that lithographs could be made from McKenney’s “Indian Gallery.” Additional images were taken from paintings by James Otto Lewis, George Catlin and other artists. James C. Hall, a Cincinnati judge and novelist, contributed an historical and anecdotal text. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their own publishing enterprise, saw their work as a means of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The portfolio nearly bankrupted McKenney as well as the two printing firms who invested in its publication. But their work proved to be much more valuable contribution than they imagined. Catlin’s paintings of Indians were destroyed in a warehouse fire; and James Otto Lewis’ watercolors burned along with those by King in the Smithsonian fire of l865. The McKenney and Hall portraits remain as the most complete and colorful record of the native leaders who made the long journey to Washington to speak for their people. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing and staining. Seller Inventory # gq418d

About this Item: E. C. Biddle, Philadelphia, 1837. Lithograph, printed and hand-colored by J. T. Bowen after a portrait by Saint-Memin in the American Philosophical Society. In excellent condition apart from faint off-setting in plate. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Shahaka, or Coyote (c. 1765 - c. 1810) was known to Lewis and Clark as Big White. He was a large, affable man, and unusually talkative, a trait despised by Native Americans generally. Chief of the "Lower Village" of Mandan on the Missouri in present day North Dakota, he won the friendship of Lewis, Clark and the rest of the expedition, and he was invited back to meet President Jefferson who entertained him at Monticello. During his visit to Philadelphia, Charles Balthasar Julien Febret de Saint-Mémin painted the chief's portrait, which was given to the American Philosophical Society, and it is from this that McKenney's portrait was made. Accused of being seduced by the white man's world and of fabricating tales, Shahaka's people were extremely uninterested in hearing his travel stories. He was killed in a battle with the Sioux a few years later. Mckenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

About this Item: E.C. Biddle, Philadelphia, 1837. unbound. Condition: very good. J.T. Bowen (illustrator). Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.25" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Sha-Ha-Ka was known for his friendship with the explorers Lewis and Clark who met him in the villages near the Missouri River in what is now North Dakota. The chief was persuaded to go to Washington D.C. with them where he was subsequently paraded around eastern cities as a typical savage from the Wild West. Overall toning and offsetting. Light scattered foxing and staining. Slight tape residue along top edge. One of many Native American portraits in our collection. Seller Inventory # 213762
