North American (Mississippi Valley and Ohio), Central American and Peruvian antiquities - North American (Mississippi Valley and Ohio) 1858
Davis, Edwin Hamilton
Works of art
Drawings of antique objects found in mounds, tombs, and ancient cities of America, arranged, classified and described by Dr. Davis. Material also includes typed list of drawings and notes - 10 pages. Five deteriorating acetate negatives that originally came with the collection have been discarded. Four were copy negatives of some of the drawings. The fifth negative, which has been digitized, is a photograph of an artifact, not found among the drawings. The image is a side view of a pipe carved in the shape of a frog crouched to spring. A print made from the digital image has been placed with the collection.
