Viii, 142 pages, plates, pictorial wrappers, very good. 7 by 10 inches. From the foreword: "The pipe tomahawk is an implement unique in American Indian life. Although most native peoples of the world had cutting axes and smoking pipes, it was only in North America that these two functions were fused into a single object. . . Yet with all of this historical and sociological lore, almost no serious attention has been given to the story of its development and typology, as the bibliography will attest; this volume represents an attempt to present much of that story in detail. . . . Accompanying these accounts is certainly the most extensive visual record of tomahawk types yet published.". N° de réf. du libraire 32170
