Olive green paper wraps, pp. 133-276 plus 29 BW plate pages. "Among no other California people was there so great a variety in basketry as among the Pomo, who occupied the greater part of Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake counties, and vicinity. It is with the basketry of the Pomo, and particularly with its designs and other ornamentation, that the present paper has to deal. Information upon the general features of Pomo basketry, and to a certain extent upon their designs, was collected during some years of residence in the Pomo region, but it was not until 1904 that an attempt was made to systematically collect and verify all information possible concerning Pomo basketry and basket designs. This work was conducted as part of the investigations of the Ethnological and Archaeological Survey of California maintained by the Department of Anthropology of the University of California throug the generosity of Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst. The general method pursued during the work was to question informants of three dialectic groups ... concerning the eight hundred and forty patterns shown on the photographs of three hundred and twenty-one Pomo baskets."
