hopi pottery designs

this book is of great value to collectors of prehistoric hopi pottery and for its value as a piece of art history

Classic reference book on Hopi pottery & sybology

Reprint of portion of Bureau of Ethnology Report #17, 1895 and #33 (I don't know the date). Not the easiest reading, but important primary resource. Fewkes was not the most meticulous archaeologist, but for his day he was pretty good, and he obtained his information at an early period in the ethological research of the Hopi culture.
