This set of nine volumes from the Americanist Studies, published by the Smithsonian, is part of 20 planned volumes, begun in 1978, and only 17 were completed. Edited by William C. Sturtevant, each volume covered a specific region or topic, and was edited and written by recognized experts in the particular area. This work documents information about all Indigenous peoples of the Americas north of Mesoamerica, including cultural and physical aspects of the people, language family, history, and prehistory. With many black and white illustrations, including maps, drawings, and photos, each volume illustrates clothing, artifacts, and specific aspects of every culture described. This is a reference work for historians, anthropologists, other scholars, museums, collectors and dealers of Amerind artifacts, and the general reader. The nine volume set can be purchased as a whole for $550, or by individual volume. Discounts will be available for multiple volume purchases. Purchased directly from the Smithsonian over many years, some have original prices, and all are in very good, like new condition, with only a tiny bit of wear to covers.
