McKenney and Hall "No-Tin, A Chippewa Chief" Hand Colored Lithograph c.1842
Rare mid 19th century hand colored lithograph of "No-Tin" a Chippewa Chief.
From the two volume work of McKenney and Hall beginning in the 1830s when various Indian personages were visiting Washington.
The original paintings were burned in a fire at the Smithsonian. Copies are now in the Peabody Museum.
This color lithograph of No-Tin was thought to be printed in 1838, though we are giving it a date of 1842, as that is the text that appears in the print.
Dimensions 16.75" x 20.75". The frame adds an additional .75" to the overall dimensions.
A letter dated 1982 appears on the back of the frame with bits of information on the lithograph.
Very good antique condition. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a rare American lithograph.
