A young lawyer turned portraitist, Catlin set out for the West from his home in Pennsylvania in 1830 to record on canvas North American Indians and their way of life. His eight years among the major tribes of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains resulted in his "Indian Gallery," an enormous collection of artifacts, as well as more than four hundred paintings, including portraits and scenes of tribal life.

His North American Indians, first published with uncolored plates in 1841, is one of the most original, authentic and popular works on the subject. The history and the customs of such a people, Catlin wrote, "preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life, shall prevent me from becoming their historian".

First edition was published in New York, 1841 under the title: "Letters and notes on the manners, customs, and condition of the North American Indians".

Two volumes. Large octavo, original pictorial red cloth covers with gilt and black cover and spine illustrations, top edges gilt, uncut.

Notes: Erratic pagination. Leaf 333 text cut off in gutter.
