Condition: Fair to Good.  Binding tight.  No tears.  Long inscription on cover, including date.  Lower front cover corner has approx. 1″ bend.  Upper rear cover corner has 2 bends, one approx. 2″ (upper), the second approx. 5″ (lower).  Lower rear cover corner has approx. 2″ crease.   Lower corner ffep has approx. 1/2″ bend.  I’d say “Some corner and edge wear” but that’s being redundant.  Foxing to text blocks.

Notes: Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 100.  Kiatuthlanna is Zuni for “Place of the Big Water”.  North of St. Johns, AZ, a few miles east of the Petrified Forest NM.  The Zuni believe it was one of the places their ancestors rested and built during their migration from their origin place to their present pueblo in western New Mexico.  The inscription on the front cover indicates Truman Ward, an assistant secretary (BAE? Smithsonian?) received the book from John W. Boehne, Jr., at the time (1931) a congressman from Indiana.  Odd association copy.
