Description

In 1854 the "Great White Chief" in Washington made an offer for a large area of Indianland and promised a reservation for the Indian People. Chief Seattle (1786 - 1866) counseled for peace. This bookwork contains excerpts from Seattle's speech regarding the treaty that would have the Indian lands controlled by the government. Prospectus: "This is a wonderful sampler of Dave Wood's unique style and versatility of lettering and was one of three handmade books he completed in 1990 to gain his Fellowship to the Society of Scribes & Illuminators in London." http://www.vampandtramp.com/finepress/w/dave-wood.html#sthash.cxKuWboK.dpuf
