Aboriginal Pottery of the Eastern United States by W.H. Holmes

Ancient Pottery of the Mississippi Valley

A Study of the Collection of the Davenport Academy of Natural Sciences

William H.. Holmes - 1884

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

For this study, Holmes preferred to "single out a particular collection, making it the subject of a thorough investigation ... the collection presenting the greatest advantages was that of the Academy of Natural Sciences at Davenport, Iowa, which was, therefore, chosen. Other museums, especially those at Cambridge, Saint Louis, and Washington, were rich in material from this region, but none of these collections were so homogeneous and satisfactory."

If you have a copy of Aboriginal Pottery of the Eastern United States (another of our Archaeology titles) you may have noticed credits for some of the beautiful pottery from the Davenport Academy of Natural Sciences. 

Gustav's Library is located in Davenport, Iowa and we are especially pleased to make this valuable work available again.

This 7-1/2" x 10-1/2",  75 page soft cover book contains 103 illustrations.   $10.95
