the aborigines of minnesota

N.H. Winchell - 1911

Two Part Set

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

An extremely rare landmark work devoted to the aboriginal occupation of Minnesota from prehistoric to modern times.  Edited by N.H. Winchell from the collection of Jacob V. Brower and the field surveys and notes of Alfred J. Hill and Theodore H. Lewis. 

Due to the sheer size of the original, a staggering 761 pages with 704 illustrations and foldouts, we have split it into two parts as the original one volume work is very unwieldy to handle, this is truly a monumental work.  All text blocks, illustrations and foldouts are full-size

This 9-1/4" x 12-1/4" (approximately), soft cover, two volume, facsimile reprint contains 761 pages and is illustrated by thirty six halftone page plates, twenty six foldout inserts and six hundred and forty two figures inserted into the text.  $54.95
