LISTING IS FOR TWO NATIVE AMERICAN BOOKS, both having a wealth of images and information from antique to contemporary including both North and South American tribes or cultures. The two books are:
GIFTS OF THE SPIRITS, a hard back catalog of an exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass. in 1996. Original dust cover is still with book. Images are excellently executed in both color and black and white. Book is in excellent condition, to my knowledge this is the first and only hard back edition. Spine is good and unbroken and book has no odors. BOOK SIZE: 8 1/2" WIDE 12" LENGTH
THE ANCESTORS, an older, 1979, paperback book with 197 pages packed with information and knowledge. The listing of artifacts illustrated and discussed is over 20 pages. While there are 15 pages of color photographs, the majority are black and white. However, images are excellent. Artifacts are explained in great detail and if available, the authors have shown us exactly how some of the baskets and weavings are made. Book is in good condition, some highlighting, some light fading on the cover, but spine is good and book has no odors.
I am out of room for my beloved books so duplicates have to be sold! Both books have information for the beginner and advanced collector!
Thank you for your interest, books are sold together and I prefer priority mail ($13) or even first class ($10) because of the tracking, however if you want media mail ($6) I will need you to release my insurance coverage and be prepared for the approximate two weeks for delivery. I have tried to price the group below the retail values so we can do one of the safer shipping options. Just email me before paying with your decision and I will make the changes on the invoice, thanks.
All our items are available for a combined layaway!
