DISCOVER THE WORK OF EDWARD CURTIS

ARTIST – ETHNOGRAPHER

 

Between 1900 and 1930, Edward Curtis traveled deep into Indian territories and lived among dozens of Native tribes. He captured the authentic ways of life of over 80 Native cultures, producing over 40,000 glass plate negatives, 10,000 wax cylinder recordings, 4,000 pages of anthropological text, and a feature-length film. His dedication culminated in the production of  The North American Indian, the most extensive and expensive photographic project ever undertaken.  Read More …

THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN
THE REPUBLICATION

This is believed to be the largest and most ambitious republication project in North American publishing history. All twenty Volumes and twenty Portfolios have been re-created with exacting detail for this new publication. Original Sets of The North American Indian are in the permanent collections at Harvard, Yale, The Met and over 100 other public and private rare book collections. The Complete Reference Edition offers a finely-crafted alternative to the original Curtis Sets for far less than 1% of the cost and offers greatly enhanced accessibility, readability, and unwavering fidelity to the original.  This is a wonderful opportunity to own a finely crafted piece of American history.
