(Taos), (Taos Pueblo Governor's Office), (1970). Art by seventh and eighth grade Indian children from the Taos Pueblo Indian School's class of 1967-68. Inscribed by Frank Waters, who provides an introduction. The colophon states that this is a Special Collector's Edition, but this copy, like most that turn up, is unnumbered and without the trappings of the deluxe edition -- the tipped in signed artwork, or the signatures on the limitation page. The first printing was 1200 copies and is scarce in either the signed or unsigned issue. Waters, the author of The Man Who Killed the Deer and The Woman at Otowi Crossing, among others, often wrote on Native American themes and was of partial Cheyenne descent himself, a fact he seldom made known. Oblong hardcover; the tops of two pages have been unevenly opened, else fine without dust jacket, as issued. [#031472] $150
