Summary

Summary

A rare joy for aficionados of fine book production: fine binding, paper, and printing make this volume a splendid vehicle for presenting 109 gravure prints housed at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. The collection is unique in the world: original, individually signed platinum exhibition prints of Native American subjects, taken by Curtis in 1904 and 1905. Clark Worswick, who now directs the Peabody Essex Museum, saw them first in 1977, stored in drawers in the Museum's predecessor institution; he provides an introduction describing this discovery and discussing Curtis's life, work, and paradoxical reception. The book is distributed by Publishers Group West. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
