1 Philbrick, Nathaniel Abram's Eyes: The Native American Legacy of Nantucket Island
Nantucket Island, Massachusetts Mill Hill Press 1998 0963891081 / 9780963891082 First Edition Cloth 
(1998). Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Large octavo. xiii + 304pps., with illustrations. Stated First Edition. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is also as new.

"Beginning with Abram Quary, the man whom white Nantucketers erroneously claimed was the island's 'last Indian,' Abram's Eyes traces a Native American legacy that has refused to die. Combining archaeological and historical evidence with the native Nantucketers own oral traditions, this book reveals the continuities between the worlds of the Nantucket Indian and the Nantucket whaleman and how the island's Indian-whaling legacy lives on."
