Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall. The History of the Indian Tribes of North America. Philadelphia, 1842-70. Octavo; paper ca. 10 1/2 x 6 1/2. Lithographs with original hand coloring. Originally issued in folio size in 1837-1844, the McKenney & Hall History of the Indian Tribes of North America was a success, but its large size and cost meant that it was not a financial success for Thomas McKenney. In order to try to generate extra income, McKenney had the portraits and text issued in a smaller octavo size that was both more practical and affordable. The work came out in several editions from 1842 to 1870. The prints from the early editions (1842-58), have the imprint of either J.T. Bowen or D. Rice & A.N. Hart. Later edition prints (1865-70) were redrawn on stone and have a Rice, Rutter & Co. imprint. I have had the engravings mounted on acid free foam board and shrink wrapped. This works well for storage, or you can have the engraving matted and framed as you wish. We ship your purchases via USPS Priority Mail. Our shipping rates are a flat $7 regardless of number purchased. Included in our shipping charge is insurance.
