by Field, Thomas W

Condition: See description


New Haven, 1991. x,430pp. Cloth. Reprint of one of the most useful bibliographies in Americana. The first edition of this bibliography is practically unobtainable, and the only reprint (Columbus, 1951) is so scarce as to bring several hundred dollars when it appears at auction. Field's bibliography lists 1708 books relating to American Indians, covering the colonial period in the British and French colonies. There are also numerous important listings for western and Latin Americana as well. A must for every Americana reference shelf.
