A small, light name stamp of former owner, Desert Magazine, on front, free end paper, corners lightly bumped and very light cover soil, there is slight rubbing and wear to the spine title. Darkening to the front endpaper gutter and to the rear end papers, obviously from the quality of the glue that was used. Overall this is Very Good and much better than is usually seen. The plates are clean and Fine. Many of these books were tragically disbound to frame the plates and it is rare to find this book in this condition. Illustrated with 28 spectacular, full-page color plates of Hopis in their Kachina dress by Earle. Facing page has description of the plate. 40 pages of text, notes and bibliography. Tan cloth with brown-stamped pueblo design on front cover and brown-stamped title on spine. Bookseller Inventory # 6351
