This copy appears to be a relatively early rebind. It is quarterbound dark leather with blue cloth with gilt titles on the spine and gilt decrations on the five rolls. The leather looks original, as do the endpapers, though I find no records of a leather edition. There is a former owner's pictorial book plate on the front pastedown. Overall this copy is a solid, first edition, copy, square and securely bound. ; Photo-lithographs & woodcuts; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 532 pages; This is a first edition copy of the classic work on Southern tribes, especially in Georgia, focusing on the time of the first contact with Europeans. Jones' personal field research provided much of the material. The book is illustrated with woodcuts and 30 photo-lithographic plates. Howes, J-194, DeRenne II p. 741.
