[Cambridge, Massachusetts]: John Andrew & Son, 1906.
First edition. Hand-pulled gravure print. Plate no. 29 from the first portfolio of The North American Indian. Light toning and a few very faint, tiny stains at the margins, very good. Signed and dated by Edward Curtis (1912) on the bottom margin. Professionally framed in a dark green mat inside a wood and glass frame measuring approximately 19" x 23". A hauntingly beautiful, large scale image of four riders on horseback through the Canyon del Muerto in Arizona. Located within the Navajo Nation, the canyon is the site of numerous ruins, and of the killing of over one hundred Navajos by a Spanish cavalry in 1805. Signed loose prints from the first portfolio are scarce.
