Sacred legacy: Edward S. Curtis and the North American Indian

New York et al. Simon & Schuster, n.d. [2000]. Edition limited to 1500 copies (this no. 1078), signed by the author, folio, pp. 192; photoreproductive prints after Curtis' original photographs throughout; original full cloth, photographic onlay on upper cover, fine in original slipcase. From the publisher: "In this landmark volume, almost 200 of the finest examples of Curtis's photographs are reproduced with startling fidelity to his original prints. Produced to the very highest standards, "Sacred Legacy" presents Curtis's work without compromise for the first time in the modern era. Taken together, these profound images constitute no less than the core and essence of his life's work. Until now, virtually none of Curtis's photographs have been reproduced in a manner that captures the clarity and richness of his original master prints. In Sacred Legacy, his greatest images are reproduced from the finest source materials available -- a significant number from breathtaking platinum, gold, and silver prints. All have been carefully selected for publication and for an accompanying international exhibition by Curtis authority Christopher Cardozo." Item #51715
