NF. Burnt sienna cloth boards, brown dust jacket with tan and black illustration. X 165 pp. 12 color plates32 b/w plates, 16 B/W in-text figures. The Swiss artist Karl Bodmer accompanied Prince Maximilian of Wied-Neuwied on his 1833-34 expedition up the Missouri River. Beginning in St. Louis, they journeyed inland waterways through present-day Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and into Montana. His work is now considered the most vivid and instructive depiction of the nineteenth-century American West and its people prior to the decimation of many Plains tribes by disease. The book is framed by W. Raymond Wood's introduction and annotations of the artwork, Joseph C. Porter's examination of the expedition's scientific and intellectual significance, and David C. Hunt's historical summary of the publication of Bodmer's North American work. An exquisite collaboration. -from the jacket.
