1317 M'KENNEY, THOS. L., AND HALL, JAS. HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs.

"As early as 1824, the practice was begun of taking portraits of the principal Indians, who came to the seat of government, and of depositing them in the War Department. The project was approved and aided by the Executive, and under the management of Col. M'Kenney, then Superintendent of Indian Affairs, the number rapidly increased, till a very interesting gallery was formed. They were chiefly painted by Mr. King, an artist of high repute in this branch of the profession, who, by his long residence in Washington, and frequent opportunities of studying the subject of his pencil, has been remarkably successful in transferring to his canvas, the strong lineaments of the Indian countenance. Having this rare and curious collection before him, Col. M'Kenney conceived the plan of making it more valuable to the world by publishing a series of engraved portraits, exactly copied and colored from these paintings. With each portrait is connected a biographical sketch of the individual whom it is intended to represent, drawn from original materials, and interspersed with anecdotes and narrations, many of which are spirited and strikingly graphic. The work contains also a historical account of the various tribes of Indians within the borders of the United States, and particularly of those situate to the eastward of the Mississippi. This essay forms a rare and valuable contribution to Indian History."
