S. Brown, Archeologist of the State Geological Survey. Dr. Brown is on the

collections from this state, to do much field work, and to make large
collections for the state, which are now on exhibition in the Survey and

Brown's own description of the work is as follows:
The author has attempted to give in this volume a systematic idea of the
different types of Indian remains found in the state of Mississippi. Believing
that illustrations are more effective than descriptions he has given as many
pictures of artifacts as circumstances permitted. It is believed that every
illustration in the book represents an object from this state.
