    More Information:

    George Catlin. Letters and Notes ... North American Indians. London: Published by the Author, 1841. Second edition. Two octavo volumes. 264; 262 pages. With many illustrations (lacking many plates and one map). Bound in later half burgundy morocco over pebbled cloth, spines ruled in gilt burgundy gilt morocco lettering labels. Bindings worn at spines, some rubbing to boards, text with several leaves restored or repaired, with some soiling and a few tears. With an interesting inscription by a previous owner on the first blank of volume I: "S. Ryder/bought in 1850/At Diuapore-/lent to Capt. Hatton M. A.-/covers got then so eaten by/ White-duck [?] Capt. H. had/them rebound in Calcutta./went down in Ganges with/all our books in 1853." This probably explains the damage and missing plates. Good.
