This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ...with the South Americans (as in pl. 44, figs. 1, 2_, 3, 9, 10, 11; pl. 45, fi.r-8;1l-46. figs 1. 2. 3; 11-47. figs 1. 2. 3. 6; 1l-48. firm 1. 2. 3. 4. 9; pl. 49, fig. 4; pl. 50, fig. 2; pl. 51, fig. 4), and great similarity will be found amongst them. But on comparing them with the northern Asiatics (pl. 75, fig. 5; pl. 78, fig. 5; pl. 79, figs. 1, 4, 5) it will be admitted that the latter are very much alike among themselves, but may easily be distinguished from the Americans.

The Kenais (Tinne) and the At/uzbasms, from the Kwichpak to Hudson Bay and the Mississippi, to whom, among others, belong the Von. I.-14 Inkalits, the Tanana Indians (Middle Yukons), the Chippewyans, and, scattered southward, the Apaches and N avajos; 5. The Algon/eins, from the Saskatchewan to Labrador and Nova Scotia on the north, and to the Ohio and, east of the Alleghanies, to the Savannah River on the south, including the Crees, Chippeways, Lenape, Blackfeet, etc.; _6. The Iroquois (including the Hurons, Susquehannocks, Tuscaroras, etc.) on the more
