Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press, 1947. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 100 pp, illustrated with line drawings. In original printed wrappers, with single lead titled "A Note on the Alphabet" laid in. Ink stamp of previous owner on front cover, else unmarked, clean, and sound. This scarce study is based on the author's fieldwork at Lukachukai, Arizona in 1934, where he received much information from a resident who had been "a practitioner of nearly all figurine rituals mentioned in the following, but acknowledged his ignorance of the legends on which they are based." Haile (1874-1861) was a leading authority on Navajo culture and helped devise a written alphabet for the Navajo language. (Inventory #: 17238)
