Howes M129 says, "....these are the most colorful portraits of Indians ever executed. Originally issued in twenty parts [in nineteen]; but few sets were retained in that impracticable form. The original oil paintings of which the plates were copies were all destroyed in the 1865 Smithsonian fire." Some light off-setting to the front and rear free endpapers of all three volumes, else fine, bright, tight copies. Handsome set. HOWES M129.
