Handbook of Texas Archeology:

Texas Type Descriptions - 2009 Reprint Edition

Suhm & Jelks - 1962

With a new Foreword by Dee Ann Suhm Story and Edward B. Jelks

We have worked with the Texas Archeological Society to make this classic volume available once again.  As an added bonus, Dee Ann Suhm Story and Edward B. Jelks have written a new introduction to bring this important publication up to date. 

An important note about the reprint layout of this title: The original publication was a series of 3 hole punched pages that were put  into a binder so that it could be updated periodically.  As a result of this, the type descriptions were on the front of the page and the accompanying plates were on the reverse.  In this 2009 reprint we have moved the plates to face their descriptions which makes it much easier to read. 

This 8-1/4" x 10-1/2", 317 page, soft cover, facsimile reprint features 148 full page plates of pottery and flint types. $29.95

Survey of Ohio Fluted Points

Olaf H. Prufer - 1960-1964

All 10 volumes complete in one book

 

The fluted point survey undertaken by Olaf H. Prufer  of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History was conducted between 1960 and 1964 with a total of 10 small volumes produced over that period.   Fluted points were made available for the survey from both museum and private collections.

The introductions to the volumes contain a wealth of information concerning fluting, raw materials, glacial presence in Ohio, paleo encampments sites in Ohio, etc.

Descriptive data for these points includes: Owner of specimen, where, when and who found the specimen, raw material type and color, length, width, thickness, number and length of fluting, basal grinding, basal nipple presence, etc.  There is also a sketch for each point and each volume has a map of Ohio counties showing the number of points from each county that were included in the survey.

As many of these originals haven't survived the past 50 years we were extremely fortunate in acquiring a full set for republication.  We are indebted, again, to Larry Conrad of the Western Illinois University Archaeological Research Laboratory for his help in obtaining a complete set of the rare originals.  

This 6-1/2" x 9-1/2",  soft cover, facsimile reprint contains 168 pages. $16.95
