Lone Scouts of America: First Degree, Second Degree, Third Degree, Fourth Degree (circa 1915-1924)
6 Lone Scouts of America: First Degree, Second Degree, Third Degree, Fourth Degree (circa 1915-1924)
Chicago Lone Scouts of America circa 1915-24 soft cover Good Condition 
These four booklets taught young boys all manner of subjects -- first aid, Indian crafts, natural history, astronomy and more. The Lone Scouts were loosely organized, as membership did not hinge on adult leadership. Many kids lived in rural areas and were truly lone scouts. All you had to do was sign up through the mail and you could obtain the various publications and other items. In 1924, however, the loners merged with the Boy Scouts. The strong Native American influence was that of the works of Ernest Thompson Seton. Booklets measure 4" x 6" and have a cumulative 223 page count. Booklets are clean and tightly bound, but have been used and have minor faults, but nothing egregious. There's also included two advertising pieces from the Lone Scouts, one of which is a letter and a page on how to win badges and medals, and a magazine subscription form. The other is an application to join. There is some browning to the letter which had been placed against the back of the front cover of Volume 1. I have sequestered the advertising in a cello bag and will send it as such with the booklets..

7 Massacre at Gnadenhutten: Blackest Page in History of Northwest Territory (1963)
Gnadenbutten, Ohio Gnadenhutten Historical society 1963 Unknown editon Card cover Reprint from 1843 
Amazing that this little booklet, which measures 3-1/2" x 5-3/4", is still around and in pristine condition.At first glance it would seem inconsequential, but there are 23 pristine pages with a dense text, plus photographs at the back printed on quality coated paper. This book as written initially in October, 1843.The massacre came after the Moravian settlers appeared to have made peace with the Delaware Indians and of course recruited them to Christianity. But Llttle by little both sides were unhappy and on March 8, 1782 ninety-six Christian Delaware Indians were killed by colonial American militia from Pennsylvania in the Moravian missionary village of Gnadenhütten Ohio during the American Revolutionary War.

Navajo Indian Silversmith Plying His Trade Color Postcard
8 Navajo Indian Silversmith Plying His Trade Color Postcard
Gallup, Bew Mexico J.R. Willis Very good 
A visually interesting postcard in unused condition. There is a number in the lower right corner -- 1A1436 and at the upper right C.25. Prinred in the dividing line on back are the words "C.T. American Art-Colored." Also on the reverse side there is this description printed above the message box, "Da Pah, a Navajo Indian Silversmith working in his hogan in Gallup, N.M., in which more silver is produced within a radius of forty miles of here than at any other point. His skillful work is done with the primitive tools shown in the picture. His materials are coin silver and turquoise, the silver is heated and then hammered to suit his purpose. Genuine Indian jewelry is much in demand on account of its beauty and original design, there never being two pieces alike." I am not certain of the date, but suspect it's circa 1930 because it came from a lot of Southwest travel material from that period most of which is dated in the early 30's.

Navajo Mother and Papoose Real Photo Postcard
9 Navajo Mother and Papoose Real Photo Postcard
Mullarky Photo Fine 
Very attractive real photo postcard of a Navajo mother and her papoose. Printed on AZO photographic paper the symbols of which in the stamp box show it to have been in use from 1924-1949. I believe the card is circa 1940, as it was inside a 1940 travel brochure. Beaneath the image is white captioning, but the wheel obliterates part of it, though there's enough to decipher Mullarky Photo. Photo has a light gloss and is unused.

11 The Colophon: A Book Collectors' Quarterly (1931 Part Seven)
New York The Colophon Ltd. 1931 Part Seven Hard Cover Very Good condition 
I love this hard cover magazine and all of its other issues. As you can see above, this is Part Seven, but it's a stand-alone item, as the word part is similar to issue. This part includes these article topics: Stephen Crane; the Indian Capture of Mary Jemison and the books and pamphlets which chronicle it; the Golden Cockerel Press founded in 1920 by Harold Midgeley Taylor in England; Robert Louis Stevenson's annotated set of Wordsworth's books; thoughts on half-tile pages and an article by Dard Hunter who was a huge contributor in the Arts and Crafts movement. He was a printer, a papermaker and a designer of beautiful books. The magazine measures 9" x 10-1/2". A lovely gift for a book lover. Other issues available.

A History of Cedar Key (Florida, 1998), Author Unknown
16 Author Unknown A History of Cedar Key (Florida, 1998)
Cedar Key, Florida Cedar Key Beacon 1998 Card cover Fine condition with Bird's Eye View Laid-in 
I had one of these before, but it didn't have this wonderful laid-in bird's eye view of the area as it was in 1884. It too is in like new condition, so given that, the booklet is an especially good one. The pictorial view is neatly folded as per design, but when opened measures 11" x 16". the booklet itself measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 32 pristine pages. Text covers the history of Cedar Key; the fort at Cedar Key; fight with the Seminoles; steamboats, pencils and railroads; Cedar Key and the Civil War; the coming boom; travelers finding Cedar Key; fishing and sawmills; and the survival of a community.

History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan, Blackbird, Andrew J. (Chief Mack-E-Te-Be-Nessy)
17 Blackbird, Andrew J. (Chief Mack-E-Te-Be-Nessy) History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan
Harbor Springs,Michigan Little Traverse Regional Historical Society Inc. circa 1991 Reprint soft cover Fine 
This is much newer than most of the things I buy, but it's a reprint of an 1887 history originally published in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The small format (just 5"x6-1/2" plus the simplicity of the binding, makes it rather ephemeral. This copy appears unread and is clean as a whistle inside and out. Hemingway fans will enjoy the stamp on the front page (see photo two) which commemorates the marriage of Papa and his first wife, Hadley Richardson, in Horton Bay, Michigan Sept. 3, 1921. The book tells the story of the Ottawa and Chippewa tribes of Michigan and also includes a grammar of their language, as well as a personal and family history of the author, a Native American who was the son of an Ottawa chief. 128 pages.

Tucson, Arizona Bookjum Books 1991 0963085301 / 9780963085306 First Edition,Third printing soft cover Near fine 
Very handsome booklet showcasing southwest American Indian pottery. I found a few extra articles on the topic laid-in, none of which caused any browning to pages. I have sequestered them in a plastic bag and will send along with the booklet. Everything is crisp and clean and there is no spine crease. Former owner's name on title page, a few tiny check marks next to a couple names on the list of artists at back, and two circled names on the Quezada family genealogy are only faults. There's a lot of information here, but it's the huge pictures and dramatic black and white design which makes it a stand-out. Booklet measures 8-1/2"x11" and has 89 pages. Text is in both ENGLISH and SPANISH.

Tucson, Arizona Self-Published 1979 soft cover Very Good 
Crisp and clean with extra goodies inside. The previous owner slipped several related articles into the pages, none of which caused browning. Nonetheless I have sequestered them in a plastic bag which will come with the booklet. This is really a labor of love, much research and a lot of photographs in both black and white and color. The author SIGNED and inscribed the booklet on the title page (see photo). The booklet measures 8-1/2"x11" and has 48 pristine pages printed on quality coated paper.
