Reports on Indians Taxed and Indians Not Taxed.
by Donaldson, Thomas C.
[vi], 683pp, maps (3 folding), plates (19 in color, 2 folding). Large, heavy quarto. Original cloth, wear to the extremities with some loss at the tips. Back hinge cracked but holding on. A sound, unsophisticated copy that would benefit from some tightening up, withal internally clean and very good. This is one of the most important and detailed treatments of Native Americans published in the 19th century. Indians had not been treated by previous censuses, and this volume was intended to make up that gap. The result is a document that addresses virtually every aspect of Indian life including populations by state, life on the reservations and off, schooling, economies, and much more. The many photographs are a fascinating record of Indian life, and the color plates - all done by noted artists of the time - are of exceptional quality. A tremendously important work. Howes D418.
