Kitchi-gami. Wanderings round Lake Superior
Chapman and Hall, London 1860 - First edition in English, 8vo, pp. xii, 428; bound without the 32-p. Chapman & Hall catalogue; original brown cloth with a neat, 19th century rebacking in brown morocco, gilt-decorated spine; very good. The book was first published in German in Bremen in 1859. "One of the most exhaustive and valuable treatises on Indian life ever written" (Sabin). Field notes that the book is "wholly the result of personal experience, and one which only the most fervent scientific zeal and earnest self-abnegation, as well as a very high order of intelligence could produce. [Kohl] endeavored to penetrate the thick veil of distrust, ignorance and superstition which conceal the mind of the Indian, and learn the innate traverses of thought which give motive to his soul." Howes K247; Sabin 38215; Graff 2354; Field 842; TPL 3573; Lande 1894. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
