This is a separate from the "Internationales Archiv fur Ethnographie" Vol VII. The front wrap is badly chipped around the edge but all of the print is intact. Part of the inscription is effected but it is all readable and the signature is unaffected. There is an erased deaccession stamp from the Peabody Museum and some penciled price notations. 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.

Pueblo, Tusayan, Art, Katchinas
