INDIAN BLANKETS AND THEIR MAKERS

James George Wharton

Tudor Publishing Co.:, 1937. 213 pages, illustrated in color and b&w. "Prior to 1892 the modern Navaho blanket ws almost unknown. As I shall show in the chapter on the early history of the blanket, there were rare, fine, and wonderful blankets made early in the last century that today are the envy and desire of the collector, but it was not unitl after 1892 that the blanket began to be made on a large scale as a commerical article. The came a rapid deterioration of the art that was as unnecessary as it was lamentable and regrettable, for it gave crude, thick, coarse, degraded specimens of blanetry to the work and thus worked the art long-time detriment and injury." FINE- HARDCOVER, ex-library with drawn. The front blank endpaper has been removed from the book, else a nice clean tight copy.. Hard Cover. Fine-/No dust jacket present. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
