Lot 807    

Rare Catalog of D.F. Barry's Photographs,
2005, Historic Americana / Nov 16, 17 & 18
12mo, 16pps with illustrated wraps, D.F. Barry's Catalogue of Noted Indian Chiefs with Barry's 522 Tower Avenue, Superior, Wisconsin address. No date, but post 1890 when Barry moved from Bismark to Superior.

Barry, one of the most noted of the frontier photographers, operated a studio in Bismark during the heyday of the Indian War on the Northern Plains. Over the course of his long career, he photographed hundreds of noted American Indians as well as many of the participants in the battle of the Little Big Horn. This catalog listed titles for 320 of his best known photographs.

A valuable resource for the Barry collector, and the first we have seen.
