New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, (1902). Illustrated in color by Edwin Willard Deming. Quarto (10 x 8 inches), yellow pictorial cloth with mounted reproduction on cover; light soiling. Item #1813
First edition. "In the first flush of process reproductions, the Deming's INDIAN CHILD LIFE (Stokes,1899)) and RED FOLK AND WILD FOLK (Stokes, 1902) appeared, comprising stories and, in the second instance, folk tales by Therese o. Deming and full page color plates after paintings by her husband, E.W. Deming, who specialized in Indian subjects. Though they were not really picturebooks...they were the closet thing to it, and nothing perhaps is more indicative of the lag in picturebook publication that that they held sway for more than thirty years."
