Washington: Government Printing Office, 1904. First edition thus. Large, fat octavo, 171-548, viii pp., with 248 plates in color and b/w, 212 drawings in the text from a huge variety of sources. The book itself is taken from the report of the U.S. National Museum for 1902. The author was an ethnologist and a curator at the Smithsonian. There is a ghostly four-leaf clover print between two empty pages, and two b/w plates have worn edges from having worked loose. These are now reinserted. The book includes a reading list and an extensive bibliography. The book is internally near fine in spine-sunned half blue morocco and marbled paper on boards, bottom edges and corners quite rubbed and worn, but overall a very good copy.
