Clarke, Noah T. THE WAMPUM BELT COLLECTION OF THE NEW YORK STATE MUSEUM. Albany: From New York State Museum Bulletin 288, 1931. 8vo, original printed card covers. 85-121, (1) pages, including 7 plates of wampum belts. Holed twice near spine for inclusion in binder; very good. An interesting and well-illustrated monograph on a collection that was the subject of much controversy. The collection and the official role of Wampum Keeper were returned to the Onondaga in 1989.
