About this Item

Oblong octavo. blue cloth lettered in gilt, orange end papers. Illustrated with reproduction sketches. "Ledger art is the term used to describe Plains Indian drawings and paintings on paper from the second half of the nineteenth century because they were often made on ledger paper readily available from military outposts. Howling Wolf is arguably the single most important ledger artist to emerge from the anonymity of this period . the author shows ledger art to be a significant record of cultural attitudes . not only as historic documents but as visual statements reflecting the time, place, and society in which they originated" from dust jacket.
