The Monacelli Press, with The Corvus Press, New York, 2009, being a reissue of the original edition of 1996; this reprint itself is out of print. A Fine, unmarked quarto volume (approx.. 11.25”) in dust jacket. vii + 335 p.; maps showing the territories of the Kwaikutl, Haida, Tsimshian, Haisla and Tlingit peoples; Bibliography; Synonymy; 499 photographs, 40 figures. Uncommon in Canada, we suspect because the publisher had no distributor or agent in this country.
Wardwell was formerly the curator of primitive art at the Art Institute of Chicago, and a recognized art historian specializing in the art of indigenous peoples. The images are arranged by theme: masks, amulets, soul catchers, drums, boxes etc. The textual material includes chapters on ‘The Oldest Religion’; ‘Visions and Spirit Quests’; and ‘Objects of Power’, inter alia. A heavy volume which may require additional shipping costs.
