Certain Caddo Sites in Arkansas

Indian Notes & Monographs

M.R. Harrington - 1920

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

 

The classic book of the Caddo Indians, Harrington's excavations continued where Clarence B. Moore's left off.  This work focuses upon this one culture and the depth of study is superb.  Utilizing excavations and research materials, Harrington paints a vivid picture of this vanished people's life.   Profusely illustrated,  there is plate after plate of Caddo pottery, flint, ground stone, pipes, etc. -  137 full page plates in all. In fact, it was very difficult to pick out just a few plates for this display as some of the most breathtaking artifacts are pictured throughout this book.

As with other early titles of the Heye Foundation, this book was originally published in the small format used by the Hispanic Society of America for their publications, we have enlarged this edition 125% from the original to facilitate ease of handling.

Please take a look at the extended table of contents (below) to see the many areas covered by this monumental work.

This 6-1/2" x 9", soft cover, facsimile reprint contains 348 pages of text, 137 full page plates and 43 illustrations.  $27.95
