DescriptionEdward Curtis’ "The North American Indian" is a collection of 20 informational books and 20 books of large images, written and photographed by Curtis and his collaborators over the course of nearly 30 years, detailing the traditions and customs of more than 80 of North America's native nations.

Each published set was accompanied by 20 textual volumes and 20 accompanying portfolios of photogravures of the people, places and customs Curtis came to know. The set is considered a remarkable publishing feat and an invaluable historic and artistic resource. There were 222 complete sets published and it is unknown how many exist today.
