Detailed Product Description
Princeton, 1903, 1st edition. Stiff wrappers, Quarto, (13 inch tall softcover), xvi + 314pp. Frontispiece, 2 figures, 25 photogravure plates with 50 illustrations and 1 color map. In as New condition!

In 1896, John Bell Hatcher, a Princeton University paleontologist and geologist, conceived of, planned and secured the greater part of the funding for three expeditions to Patagonia, as well as the idea of publishing the results of the expeditions with funding from J. Pierpont Morgan. The trips were chronicled in the Princeton University Expeditions to Patagonia, 1896-1899. This is Volume one of the 27 part results of the expeditions, the Narrative of the Expedition. The other volumes are scientific reports.

The Bureau of American Ethnology commissioned him to collect artifacts and make photographs of the Tehuelche and Yahgan Indians. As no there were no collections of Patagonian fossils in the US at this time, the collection of these fossils was the primary interest motivating this expedition and indeed the first mesozoic mammal fossils ever discovered were found in Patagonia by Hatcher and his band of scientists.

'The bulky and beautifully illustrated volume devoted to the narrative of the expedition and geography teems with interest, but here, again, limitations of space prevent our doing justice to its contents. Perhaps the most generally interesting section is the one describing the Tehuelche Indians and their mode of life, which contains a number of most excellent portraits of these interesting tribes, as well as illustrations of the manner in which guanaco robes and other articles are manufactured.'
