SCHOOLCRAFT - INDIAN TRIBES- 1853- volume 3 only, with hand-colored plates. Historical and Statistical Information respecting the History, Condition and Prospects of the Indian Tribes of the United States: Collected and Prepared under the Direction of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, per Act of Congress of March 3rd, 1847.

Text in Very Good condition. Field's bibliography: #1379: Schoolcraft's work was intended to be a great encyclopedia of information relating to the American aborigines.

With great earnestness, some fitness for research, and a good deal of experience of Indian life, Mr. Schoolcraft had but little learning and no scientific training. In consequence, his six volumes are little more than a magazine, of such matter relating to the Indians as fell top his hand, including a rehash of all which he had before written and printed in numerous forms. Badly arranged, and selected as it is, the work contains a vast mass of really valuable material. It has indeed performed a very important service for Indian history, in collecting and preserving an immense amount of historic data.

Vocabularies of Indian languages, grammatical analyses, legends of various tribes, biographies of chiefs and warriors, narratives of captivities, histories of Indian wars, emigrations and theories of their origin, are all related and blended in an extraordinary and perplexing manner. And every form of antiquities which have been discovered. The contents follow: PART THIRD. ANTIQUITIES OF THE UNITED STATES. PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY OF THE INDIAN COUNTRY.
