Previous owner name stamp verso half-title, Else a Fine copy in dustwrapper of this collection of nine stories (or tales, or myths) from the First Nations peoples of California. “The tales are unique in their concentration upon women as central characters, and some are strangely pastoral in style and content. ‘These stories are about women’, says Mrs. Kroeber, ‘but not for women more than for men. Sine Indians rarely see their stories as being concerned with women, it is interesting to discover how plainly the California Indians limned their women, and in what variety’.” Small octavo, cloth with wonderful line drawing of female figure on front boards, in publisher’s original dustwrapper.
