*********Oversized-Folio-hardcover in navy blue cloth with titles in gilt on front & spine. Pictorial navy DJ. First Printing. Near Fine in a Very Good+DJ/: DJ exhibits light scratches with some very small scrapes on bottom right corner of front panel. 1/4" closed tear on bottom rear panel. DJ Not price-clipped. Right corner of front board bumped; text itself exceptionally clean & bright. Foreward by Bill Holm; Appreciation by Beaumont Newhall; Photographs; Notes; Bibliography; Index. 256pp. Curtis' monochromatic photographs/studies of North American Native Americans are iconic and legendary, but few know the history of the man who took the images. This book is the first comprehensive biography of the extraordinary man who helped shape the romantic view of The West and brought to life through the lens the glory of the American Indian. Book contains over 200 duotone full-page plates, including unusual and previously unpublished hand-tinted, goldtone, platinum, silver and cyanotype photos.An Appreciation by photo historian Beaumont Newhall and foreward by ethnologist Bill Holm discuss Curtis' relevance today. Altogether a very nice copy of a work that offers 'a rich and surprisng portrait of a heroic figure whose contributions to the history of the American West, photography and ethnography are just now coming to light.' #2008hbr.
