The back wrap is also in bad shape. The wraps have been taped to the spine and the title written on the spine. There is some minor chipping along the edges of the 28 pages of text which discusses various katcina forms and manufacturing techniques. However, it is the seven chromoliths of 47 kachinas that makes this item special. The plates are bright and protected by the original tissues.There is minimal chipping along the extreme edges of the plates, otherwise they are fine.
