PARSONS, Elsie Clews, ed.
American Indian Life
NY, B.W. Huebsch, (1922). Edited by Elsie Clews Parsons. An important anthology of pieces about Indian life and cultures, addressed to a lay audience but with contributions by many of the most prominent anthropologists and ethnologists of their time: Franz Boas, Edward Sapir, Paul Radin, Alfred Tozzer, Sylvanus Morley and many others whose work largely defined the parameters of academic inquiry for most of the last century. Thick quarto, with numerous color illustrations by C. Grant LaFarge. Front hinge cracking, otherwise very good without dust jacket. [#003806] $50
