FREE domestic or international shipping with direct order. **New York: Knopf, 1931. First edition with splendid inscription and drawing on the half-title: "To Jake Zeitlin with my. very best wishes, thanks and. – everything s. –" [sic]. The drawing shows a snow-covered volcano wreathed in clouds in the background; in the foreground a man leans forward over cacti holding a hat in his hand, and another man lounges on the ground strumming a guitar. The drawing finishes with a spectacular signature filling most of the bottom of the page. 48 plates of Indian life with facing texts. About 104 pp. Brightly decorated boards with white spine and rear cover. Except for very slight creasing at the head of the spine and a little discoloration at the tail, the book is in excellent condition. The dustjacket bears the cover design on both the front and back panels, and it, unfortunately, is in deplorable condition. The front panel is missing a riangular chunk about 4 x 2-1/4 inches at the top edge, and the rear panel has an equally large piece torn on one edge and creased on the other.
