"A young lawyer turned portraitist, Catlin set out in 1830 from his home in Pennsylvania to record on canvas the indigenous tribes of North America and their way of life. His eight years among the major tribes of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains resulted in his Indian Gallery, an enormous collection of artifacts as well as more than four hundred paintings, including portraits and scenes of tribal life. The resultant book, first published with uncoloured plates in 1841, is one of the most original, authentic and popular works on the subject"--abebooks website

The letters of George Catlin and his family : a chronicle of the American West by George Catlin( Book )

9 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the preface of this book, all of the letters written by George appear in their entirety because of his greater importance. Many letters by other Catlins have been omitted because they have little or no bearing on the artist's career. Most members of the family wrote well, but it is not the literary style of the epistles that gives the book its significance. The correspondence helps to fill in certain gaps in George's activities and to clarify or correct some previous statements about him. The general reader, whether interested in pioneer painters or not, will doubtless find that the letters reveal in an intriguing way the personal relationships of members of a good, forthright American family living in the middle years of the nineteenth century

Last rambles amongst the Indians of the Rocky Mountains and the Andes by George Catlin( )

43 editions published between 1867 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American artist George Catlin (1796-1872) travelled extensively and wrote about his experiences. After abandoning the legal profession, Catlin moved to Missouri in 1830 to launch his career as a painter of Native Americans with the express purpose of creating a gallery dedicated to America's indigenous population. He was greatly influenced by the Romantic ideal of the 'noble savage' and spent time living with various tribes, recording their everyday life and habits. In the 1850s, he also made three trips to South America and began to draw comparisons between the populations. He shares his thoughts in this work, published in 1868. Written for children and intended as a follow-up to his Life amongst the Indians (1861), the book is a mixture of legend, history, folklore and anecdotes of personal experience. Sometimes regarded as a pioneer of American anthropology, Catlin also outlines his ethnographical theories in the last few chapters

44 editions published between 1848 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American artist George Catlin (1796-1872) was fascinated by the indigenous people of his homeland and spent many years living among them, painting them, and collecting their artefacts. In 1839 he took his vast collection to Europe to exhibit it, and he also toured with groups of visiting Native Americans. This illustrated two-volume account of his experiences was published in 1848. In Volume 2, Catlin discusses his travels with visiting Native Americans to Dublin, and later Paris, where he staged another exhibition and met King Louis Philippe. The final chapter recounts Catlin's attempt to sell his entire collection to the United States government to preserve 'all the records of this dying race'. His earlier account, Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians (1841), is also reissued in this series, along with two later books for children about life among various tribes
