Item Overview

Description

These are the two text volumes issued with the rare second edition folio work of Thomas L. McKenney & James Hall's History of the Indian tribes of North America. The work was published in Philadelphia by D. Rice & Co in 1875. The volumes are bound in old half-calf. It also includes the rare octavo plate of Billy Bowlegs. There were only 35 numbered copies of this edition published, with this having been part of no. 23.

An admirer and supporter of the American Indians, Thomas McKenney spent his tenure in office fighting for their cause and preserving their legacy through a gallery of paintings that were commissioned by various artists. Unfortunately, the original paintings burned in a fire, and all that is left to remember these Indians are the lithographs found in History which were modeled off the paintings. Charles Bird King was an American portrait painter that was commissioned by McKenney to paint the portraits of the Indians. King made many of the 143 paintings from which the lithographs were created.
