The Navajo and His Blanket
Denver, Self-Published, 1903. A self-published volume on the history and the qualities of the Navajo and of Navajo weaving, well-illustrated with black and white and color plates of blankets from the author's collection. This copy is inscribed by the author, Uriah Hollister, to his brother, Warren Hollister, in Denver, in the year of publication. Laid in is a postcard announcement on a talk to be given by the author at the Colorado Academy of Science on the subject, "Navajo Blankets, Their History and Symbolism," as well as a small square sample of "old bayeta," a square of Navajo weaving, in an envelope labeled as such, with the added notation "See Page 103," signed by Fanny Hollister Moore. Some general foxing throughout, with uneven wear to the cloth covers. One color plate loose, and some soiling and wear to covers; overall a good copy, without dust jacket, as issued. [#033647] $250
