This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 20 pages of information about Navajo weavers.
NOTE.—­The engravings were prepared while the author was in New Mexico and could not be submitted for his inspection until the paper was ready for the press.  Some alterations were made from the original pictures.  The following are the most important to be noted:  In Plate XXXVIII the batten should appear held horizontally, not obliquely.  Fig. 5 is reduced and cannot fairly delineate the gradations in color and regular sharp outlines of the finely-serrated figures.  Fig. 53 does not convey the fact that the stripes are of uniform width and all the right-angles accurately made.
