1001 Curious Things: Ye Olde Curiosity Shop and Native American Art Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Founded in 1899, Seattle's Ye Olde Curiosity Shop still attracts tourists and residents alike with its Native American collectibles, a mummy named Sylvester, a collection of shrunken heads from Ecuador, a two-headed calf, and a mermaid. Now readers can take their own tour of the historic shop that is a curiosity in itself. 125 illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

A specialist in the classic arts of northwest coast Native Americans, Duncan (art, Arizona State U.) examines Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, founded on Seattle's waterfront in 1899. Though exotica from around the world vied for attention at first, soon Native American material grew to be the shop's mainstay. She discusses the art and artifacts, their origins, and their reception. Photographs and advertisements illustrate her account.
