3 Matthiessen, PeterIn the Spirit of Crazy Horse
First edition. NY: Viking, 1983. Fine in price-clipped d/w. In the Spirit of Crazy Horse chronicles the history between the Sioux and the United States government, with emphasis on the 1971 shoot-out at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, a 71-day, armed stand-off between federal and state agents and upon the 1975 shootout involving the AIM activist Leonard Peltier in which two FBI agents were killed. Matthiessen investigates his later trial and conviction; and the controversies surrounding the case. Bill Janklow, the former Republican state attorney general and governor of South Dakota, and David Price, an agent with the FBI, filed libel suits against Viking Press for contents of the book. Janklow also filed a suit against the author Matthiessen. In an unusual action, he filed a suit against three South Dakota booksellers for selling copies of the book. Viking Press filed a countersuit against Janklow, which in part alleged he had interfered with the company's constitutional rights to publish and distribute the book. The lawsuits prevented the book from being published in paperback for eight years. The rulings in favor of Matthiessen and the publishers was a major free speech case..

It is comprised of images with accompanying headings in Nahuatl and captions in Spanish. Fine overall with some toning at binding edge of the prologue which is on lower quality paper. A near fine copy in good-only quarter-leather two-post binding. Small inked name of Betty Factor on title page. Factor, and her husband Monte, were significant collectors of contemporary art in Los Angeles and founders of several non-profit institutions there. Some light age toning at the edges of several plates, not affecting the images. Two of the fold-out plates have some tears at the folds and some staining. Covers: rubbed at edges and corners with some damp staining on lower right front cover, other smaller stains and soiling on rear. Large chips at top and bottom of spine. Unlike other codices published by this press, there is no indication of a limitation but there are only six copies in Worldcat. A seventh, deteriorated copy is at the Smithsonian Institution which is currently searching for someone to contribute $1500 to fund conservation efforts. You can save them the effort by purchasing this copy for less and donating it. The original codex is held at the University of Glasgow..
