Indian Art of Ancient Florida, Barbara A. Purdy
15 Barbara A. Purdy Indian Art of Ancient Florida
U.S.A., University Press of Florida, 1996, 081301462X / 9780813014623 Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
Book is in excellent condition. Binding is solid and square, covers have sharp corners, exterior shows no blemishes, text/interior is clean and free of marking of any kind. Dust jacket shows scuffing, light edge wear and light signs of shelf wear only, no tears. 124 pages with a great many color photos. A superb book--and one that is long overdue. A fine sampling of a unique native American artistic heritage is laid out before you, in text and in pictures, in this exciting book. --Gordon R. Willey, Peabody Museum, Harvard UniversityFor thousands of years, the Indians of Florida created exquisite objects from the natural materials available to them--wood, bone, stone, clay, and shell. This stunning full-color book, the first devoted exclusively to the artistic achievements of the Florida aborigines, describes and pictures 116 of these masterpieces.A brief history of the consequences of European infiltration and laterinvestigations by explorers and archaeologists sets the stage for consideration of the works themselves. They date from the Paleoindian period (ca. 9500-8000 BC) to the mid-16th century and include utilitarian creations, instruments of personal adornment and magic, objects indicating status, and those paying homage to ancestors or aiding the dead in their journey into the next world.Because European explorers took little notice of the adornment of the Florida natives and the people themselves did not survive, no enduring artistic traditions prevail from this early period. This collection, a record of the quality and beauty of their art, includes representative objects in all media used and from all cultural periods, geographic areas, and environmental settings in which the pieces functioned.Barbara A. Purdy is professor emerita in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida, curator emerita in archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, and author of How to Do Archaeology the Right Way (UPF, 1996) and The Art and Archaeology of Florida s Wetlands (1991). Roy C. Craven, Jr., is professor of art emeritus, founding director of the University Gallery at the University of Florida, and author of Ceremonial Centers of the Maya (UPF, 1974) and A Concise History of Indian Art (1991). 138732

The Downfall of Temlaham, Barbeau, Marius
16 Barbeau, Marius The Downfall of Temlaham
Edmonton, Hurtig Publishers, 1973, First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A clean, unmarked book with a tight binding. 253 pages. 5 1/4"w x 7 5/8"h. Full dark red cloth boards show a faint stain on front cover. Slight edge wear to dust jacket. Illustrated with twelve color plates including reproductions of the works of A.Y. Jackson, Emily Carr and others. From the blurb: "First published in 1928 (this) is the work of the distinguished Canadian ethnologist, the late Dr. Marius Barbeau. A prolific writer whose contribution to our knowledge of Indian and French-Canadian folklore, arts and crafts is unsurpassed, Barbeau offers in this book a sympathetic and dramatic portrayal of a vanquished race in conflict with itself. Based on the facts of a serious disturbance among the Indians of the Upper Skeena River in 1886, it is the story of Kamalmuk and Sunbeams, husband and wife, separated by opposing ambitions and the ambivalence of the Indian's attraction to the benefits of the white man's civilization and his revulsion against its excesses. Barbeau weaves into his interpretation of Temlaham, the ritual of authentic tribal customs and the expressive but poetic language of a people in anguish." 137147
