First edition. "Anthropologist Frederick Starr relates the difficulties he had photographing, measuring, and making plaster busts of the Indian tribes of southern Mexico between 1897 and 1900. Rumors that the Indians were being measured for coffins or induction into the army and that he sliced off ears and tore strips of flesh from the subjects faces preceded Starr's appearance and hampered his efforts." - Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS TO MEXICO. 1821 - 1972. #398.
