Folk-lore of the Pueblo Indians
First edition, hardback bound in the original orange cloth with printed titling and design to spine and upper board. 20.5 × 14cm, 213pp.
A rare first UK edition of Elizabeth De Huff's Taytay's Tales, which collects 46 folk-tales from the Pueblo Indians, the Native Americans of the Southwestern United States. This book is illustrated by Fred Kabotie and Otis Polelonema, both Hopi Indians, and it is believed this was the first book to be illustrated by Native Americans.
A good copy, but with some wear. The orange cloth binding is rather marked and faded, with bumping to the corners. The contents are in better condition but there is some foxing to the endpapers and the frontispiece illustration is starting to work loose.
