Condition: Book: Fair to Good. Binding tight. No tears, bends or folds. Previous owner’s name, date, and private library markings on ffep. Slight wear to head and foot of spine. Foxing to upper text block. Gilt on spine still sharp, easily readable. Dust Jacket: Fair. NOT price clipped. One triangular chip at head of spine. At some point in time, the rear cover of the dust jacket had something spilled on it, creating a water (?) mark that extends from upper flap edge to near the bottom of the rear cover. Spotting/smudging to rear cover. Several chips along bottom edge, particularly at spine foot. Some edge wear to upper rear cover.
Notes: Indian pueblos of the upper Rio Grande, along with Zuni, Laguna and Isleta pueblos in New Mexico, and 4 Hopi villages in Arizona. The aerial photographs are all black and white, with an accompanying drawing opposite. For Isleta, the largest pueblo, unless you’re trained in photographic interpretation, the photo and drawing are not worth even trying to “read”. Each pueblo has a listing for their name etymology, their location, linguistic group, period of occupation, construction type(s), population (as of 1948), reservation size, and date of their annual fiesta or feast day.
