Description

Image size: 7 x 9 inches. 17.5 x 24.0 cm. In original colours.

A good and dark impression. A beautifully hand colored aquatint with additional hand-colouring.

The Nuu-chaf-nulth (Nootka) People have occupied the Nootka Sound for over 4,000 years and their name means the People of all along the Mountains or for short the West Coast People. The largest tribe of the Nootka are the Tla-o-qui-aht (Calayoquot) who claim to be originally from Kennedy Lake, east of Ucluelet, Vancouver Island, New Spain. They are noted for their ocean going canoes and may represent some of the people who migrated up and down the Pacific coast to populate the Americas.

From Giulio Ferrario's work Le Costume ancien et moderne ou histoire du gouvernement, de la milice, de la religion, des arts, etc. published in Milan by the author between 1816 and 1827.This aquatint engraved plate was colour printed on fine move paper of a soft aged white colour, bearing the embossed seal of authenticity impressed at the time of publication with the legend "Il Costume Antico E Moderno" surrounding the initials GF.
