Souvenirs of the Fur Trade: Northwest Coast Indian Art and Artifacts Collected by American Mariners

1788 - 1884

“Malloy draws upon both museum records and ethnohistorical documentation, thoroughly examined and interpreted in new ways. The precise, non-judgmental description of obscure collections data, much of it made more widely accessible here for the first time, will be especially pertinent to scholars of the subject.”
