Pottery Southwest.
Albuquerque Archaeological Society
Aluquerque: Albuquerque Archaeological Society, 1974-96. Quarterly periodical. This is a complete run from Volume I Number 0 (a one page prospectus soliciting subscriptions and articles) through Volume 23 Number 1. Issues are from four to fourteen pages, most six or eight. Very good in a basic clip binder. According to the prospectus, "Pottery Southwest will contain brief contributions on current research projects of the pottery of the southwest. This area includes Arizona, New Mexico, western Texas and Oklahoma, southern Colorado, Utah and Nevada, and northern Mexico." Additionally the journal had letters, announcements, notices, reviews and pretty much anything else of interest to the archaeological community. Initially, there were occasional line drawings graduating to photocopied photos and at least one color insert. Obviously a nonprofit, volunteer project, the effort had a pretty good run.

Frijoles Canyon Pictographs.
Baumann, Gustave
Los Angeles: William & Victoria Dailey Antiquarian Books & Fine Prints, 1980. [44]pp, illus, including two folding sheets (making a single, long print). Edition of 250, numbered. Bright and near fine with a like dust jacket. This is a reprint done by William and Victoria Dailey in a edition quite a bit smaller than the original 480. It is Baumann's most important illustrated book. I'll quote from the essay Gustave Baumann in the West by David Acton. "In the late 1930's, when he realized that several of the original cave paintings had disappeared in the years since he recorded them, Baumann embarked on Frijoles Canyon Pictographs, published in 1939 by the Santa Fe publishing cooperative Writers' Editions. Baumann wrote and illustrated the book printing the woodcuts in his own studio.…This text is punctuated by nineteen freely transcribed woodcuts representing vignettes from the images on cliff and cave walls, printed in a sandy brown color. Several of the pictographs represent wild game; others show divinities and spirits.…Spaced throughout the book are six color prints representing some of Frijoles Canyon's most elaborate pictographs, as well as both a glimpse inside a cave dwelling and an overall view of the canyon's south wall. In the center of the book are two pages that fold out to reveal The Deer Hunt pictograph reprinted from Baumann's original blocks carved in 1918. On every page, down to the book's endpapers that carry a woodcut aerial panorama of the canyon's south wall, Baumann lavished loving and meticulous care." Likewise this splendid reprint. (By the way, this edition has a dust jacket decorated with woodcuts prepared by Baumann but not printed in 1939. They appear here for the first time.)

A detailed examination of the “rain bird” motif, one of the basic designs in pottery decoration throughout the the southwest, and how it has gone through regional adaptations. The first book illustrated by Tom Lea who was on the staff of the Laboratory of Anthropology at the time. The dust jacket deserves special mention. Merle Armitage, one of the leading forces in modern American book design, lived in Santa Fe briefly after World War II, and he offered his services free of charge to the Laboratory of Anthropology to design new covers for old material that "had the appeal of a pamphlet produced by the Government Printing Office." Thus, academic studies that had languished in storage (including this one) sold out in month
