An interesting association item. This vol has M.R. Harrington's name stamped in it. George Heye bought Harrington's library when he accepted the advice of his archaeologists, including Harrington, that his foundation needed a research library. He later bought the C.B. Moore artifact collection from the Academy of Sciences of Philadelphia and he sent Harrington to follow up on Moore's work in Arkansas and on the Tennessee River. It is more than likely Moore gave this volume to Harrington, as it is an example of copies of his publications which he had bound in maroon hard covers for gifts.
