Joseph K. Dixon. National American Indian Memorial Association, Philadelphia, 1925
"This third and revised edition comprehends for the students of history an enlarged acknowledgement and amplifed preface, more vividly to outline the progress of the research work achieved." Contains 100 pages of new, introductory comments and "many new pictures that by value have superseded the old illustrations." Like the first two printings in 1913 and 1914, this edition contains 80 photogravures. This edition compliments the earlier printings rather than being simply reprinted with a new preface. 239 pages in fine condition. Rare Americana in a very rare state of presentation.
Genre: Indians, photography
