“the most reliable observations that had been made among various tribes…pertaining to almost every field of American ethnology.” (Larned)



Henry Rowe Schoolcraft was an early American ethnologist and expert on Native American culture. He was well-known for his Congress-commissioned study on United States Indian tribes beginning in 1851. The content of this set was considered ‘valuable scholarship’ by critics and included accurate illustrations by Eastman.



This work is considered the most extensive work on Native Americans published in the 19th-century, and, according to Field contains

“a vast mass of really valuable information and has indeed performed a very important service for Indian history, in collecting and preserving an immense amount of historic data. Vocabularies of Indian languages, grammatical analyses, legends of various tribes, biographies of chiefs and warriors, narratives of captivities, histories of Indian wars, emigrations, and theories of their origin, are all related and blended in an extraordinary manner.”



These heavily illustrated volumes depict the geography and landscape of the plains Indians, language, arts and tools, traditions, hunting and food preparation, medicine, and much more! Field notes

"A very large number of beautiful steel engravings, representative of some phase of Indian life and customs, are contained in the work, but the most valuable of its illustrations are the drawings of weapons, domestic utensils, instruments of gaming and amusement, sorcery and medicine, objects of worship, their sculpture, paintings, and fortifications, pictograph writing, dwellings, and every form of antiquities"
