Archeology of Mississippi

Calvin S. Brown - 1926

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

Mississippi's archaeological past described by Dr. Calvin S. Brown.  The illustrated pipes, for instance, are magnificent and his inclusion of Post-Columbian material really rounds out this informative work.

     For more than ten years investigations of the archeology of the state have been carried on by Dr. Calvin S. Brown, Archeologist of the State Geological Survey. Dr. Brown is on the professorial staff of the State University, but has found time during his vacations to make full and careful studies of all available archeological 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 University Museums.
     The results of Dr. Brown's work are embodied in an excellent Report beautifully illustrated with more than three hundred and fifty plates on copper made from photographs.

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.

This 6" x 8-1/2",  372 page soft cover book is illustrated with 350 plates of engravings and photographs - many full page.   $24.95
