26 Annual Report of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution Showing the Operations, Expenditures, and Condition of the Institution to July, 1885 - The George Catlin Indian Gallery in the U.S. National Museum . with Memoir and Statistics 
Donaldson, Thomas
Washington, D.C.: GPO, 1886. First Edition
Cloth 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. VG+. N/A 
Original edition, rebound in brown cloth, spine panel lettered in gold foil, with new endpapers, new head- and tail-bands, text block edges slightly shaved to tidy up appearances. Presents virtually "as new" by virtue of recent, sympathetic rebinding, rendering a very durable reference copy. xi,264,[2],vii,939 pp., complete w/ 144 full page plates, as called for, reproducing as line illustrations Catlin's paintings and drawings, folding map opposite p. 422, (2) folding maps with itinerary route outlined in color opposite p. 424. Accompanied by the final two maps (both large color folding) originally bound in at pp. 834 and 852, both loose/detached. Map of Indian Reservation shows several separations to folds along top edge, mild separation at one fold juncture, and minor mildew soiling (not active); Map of Indian Territory nicely intact with only light soiling to verso. Includes Parts I-IV, occupying through p. 264, Part V (Catlin) separately paginated, bound into one volume, as originally issued, approx. 3 5/8" thick. Occasional light, scattered soiling, mostly in margins and blank versos, light dampstaining to some plates and maps, purely cosmetic and a minor distraction, mild mildew staining (again, not active) to later Catlin portrait plates. Howes D 416. Overall, a very attractive copy that will withstand years of continued use. 028776
