274pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Green cloth covered boards with gilt stamped titles, and a gilt stamped basket design on the front cover. Rubbed at the extremities. The edges of the preliminary pages are a bit chipped.
With 360 illustrations. From the Preface- "One of the most common and useful of the domestic arts of the Amerind is that of basketry. It is primitive in the extreme, is universal, both as to time and location, and as far as we know has changed comparatively little since the days of its introduction. It touches the Amerind at all points of his life from the cradle to the grave, and its products are used in every function, domestic, social and religious, of his simple civilization."
