Indian Lore by E. Wendell Lamb & Lawrence W Shultz, signed by 15 Native Americans.

Published in 1964 in Winona lake, Indiana, written for teachers to use to for “…the teaching of Indiana history.” From the preface, “It is the hope of the authors that this volume will find a place in many homes, in libraries, both school and public, and be used in social study classes in junior and senior high schools. Children in the lower grades also will be interested in the many illustrations. We hope it will appeal to adults as well.”

First edition after the original limited edition, red cloth boards, originally gold lettering, and dust jacket. The jacket is in poor condition and the book only fair with toning from the jacket on the facing pages and deterioration of the gold lettering. Interior pages are clean and spine is strong. There is an adhered bookplate and previous owner’s name written in ink on the inside front cover.
