Description

Lewis Henry Morgan's mid-nineteenth-century assemblage of Six Nation Iroquois-made artifacts featured more than 500 objects and at the time was the largest such collection for a single Native American nation. In this richly illustrated volume, Elisabeth Tooker has brought together much previously unpublished material not only to show how Morgan managed such an impressive feat of scholarship but also to reveal something of his too often neglected research methods.
