Dutch Van Gelder Etching Stock
This original vintage photogravure is printed on a fine Dutch Van Gelder etching stock, handmade in Holland one hundred years ago. This is an expensive, heavyweight, etching stock selected by Curtis and J.P. Morgan specifically for Curtis’ North American Indian project.
This vintage photograph is from the personal collection of Christopher Cardozo (“The Christopher G. Cardozo/Edward S. Curtis Collection”).
Volume I was published in 1907 and features text and images of the Southwestern tribes of the Apache, Jicarilla and Navaho.
