Indian Blankets and Their Makers

JAMES, GEORGE WHARTON

Publisher, 1937-01-01. Hardcover. Good/Acceptable. Missing slip-case. NY Tudor 1937. Red cloth spine, book edges have white spotting, small fray at top of spine, book edges and pages have light foxing. Poor jacket is laid-in (flaps are disconnected, pieces missing, soiling tears, creases). 250 color and black and white photos are excellent for identification. His books on basketry and blankets are serious books for the collector. 1st Revised Edition. From the jacket flap: "Mr James, who is one of the best known authorities on Indian lore, presents in this volume a complete study of one of the domestic arts in which some tribes, especially the Navahos, have attained unequalled skill. Against the facinating background of Indian history the author tells of the practice of basket weaving, the uses of designs and their symbolic meaning of the application of colors, the methods of dyeing and also gives valuable hints on how to obtain genuine Indian blankets. It is practically the only book on the subject and gives to the Indian blanket a status similar to Oriental rugs, which it at times exceeds in artistry and beauty. There are more than one hundred illustrations in the book of which 32 plates are in full colors.
