The Great Mystery.

Bogardus, Peter (illus.)

(Hadley, MA): American Indian Mystery Press, 1997. Folio. (64)ff. One of 60 copies, signed by the author and the artist. Twenty-three etchings done in black, white, and shades of red, inspired by iconography of Plains peoples, specifically the Oglala Lakota. While the etchings give credence to the history of the Lakota, Means' text, rendered in his own handwriting, connects the past to the present, thwarting the temptation to romanticize the past. Means is himself an Oglala Lakota and one of the founders of the American Indian Movement, which strives to instill pride among his people and bring awareness to their place in the larger United States society. His captions to Bogardus' etchings are contemporary responses to the history of his peoples' contact with those who came from Europe. Bound in full Japanese linen cloth with black Niger goatskin label stamped in gold and scarlet to spine. Housed in matching box. Very fine. Item #28895

Price: $3,500.00
