1 Brody, J. J. Indian Painters & White Patrons
Albuquerque University of New Mexico 1971 First Edition, First Printing 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Fully-bound in ivory cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in red. Quarto. Red endpapers. 238pps., with eight full-color plates, 92 black-and-white illustrations, and two maps. There is a light touch of dustspotting atop the textblock. Also, the original owner's nameplate is neatly affixed to the front pastedown. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light rubbing wear to the extremities and the gutters; a 1 1/2' closed tear, with corresponding creases, is at the bottom of the front panel. The original price of $15.00 is intact on the front flap. Overall a very nice copy of this scarce issue.
