Description

It is bound in red cloth with gold decoration and lettering. The covers are ornate with a scalloped sided rectangular depression in the middle. In the middle of this is the embossed U. S. emblem. The edges of the contents are gilt in gold as seen when the book is closed. 126 pages with 21 Illustrations. 8" x 11" x 1 1/4" thick. The red covers form a layered binding framing a 7" high blind panel. Some page at the front loose. Heavily foxed, light spotting to the other plates, as seems to be usual with this book. The author Mary Henderson Eastman was married Captain Eastman in 1818 and lived for many years at Fort Snelling in Minnesota and other frontier stations where she became familiar with American Indian way of life. She published several works on Native Americans. Her husband Captain Seth Eastman taught drawing at Westpoint and was employed as one of the illustrators on the national work on the "History, Condition, and Future Prospects of the Indian Tribes of the United States". . Mrs. Eastman and her husband, artist Seth Eastman, were stationed at Fort Snelling, Minnesota from 1841 to 1848, and it is those experiences which are drawn on here. All of the plates were executed by Seth Eastman.
