North American Indians

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ

(Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Makuie Poka sohn des Wolfen”

“Wah Menitu ein Dacota Ein Muskole”


(North American Indians)
Three original lithographs after Karl Bodmer (Zurich 1809 – Paris 1893) and others from the graphic kit of the work “Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugetiere” printed by the swiss lithographer Honegger and published in Zurich between 1830 and 1835.
Nice examples with some foxing stains, stronger in the first subject, otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
Karl Bodmer was a Swiss draughtsman, illustrator and painter that in 1832 was engaged to accompany the explorer Prince Maximilian zu Wied Neuwied during a trip to explore Missouri Region in America.
The trip ended in 1834 when Bodmer has produced hundreds of drawings and watercolors depicting landscapes, peoples and ceremonies of the natives.
These works illustrated many books published after the return of the expedition but the most famous remain Prince Maximilian's book entitled “Reise in das innere Nord-America in den Jahren 1832 bis 1834” published in Koblenz by Hoelscher between 1839 and 1841.
