Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania, 1914. Softcover. G- (Ex-art library with spine label and few interior marks; covers have moderate edge wear with a few small pieces missing; pages are clean.). Blue paper wraps with red cloth tape spine, 262 text pp. plus 40 BW plate pages. Considers items that were then in the possession of Native American artifact collector George Gustav Heye (1874-1957). Includes fetishes, amulets, charms, and sacred bundles (war bundles, medicine bundles, etc.). The majority were from the Sac and Fox tribes, based in Oklahoma and Iowa. Here historical and descriptive narrative is followed by illustrations. Several years after this publication, Heye founded the Museum of the American Indian in New York City, using his own extensive collection as its foundation. This facility segued into the National Museum of the American Indian, which was transferred to the Smithsonian in 1989. Online sources state that about a third of that collection has since been repatriated.
