GEORGE CATLIN. APRIL 12, 1842.... REPORT: THE COMMITTEE OF WAYS AND MEANS, TO WHOM WAS REFERRED THE PETITION OF GEORGE CATLIN RESPECTFULLY REPORT....
27th Cong., 2d Sess. HR Rep. No. 636. 3 pp. Disb. Very good. Catlin petitions the government to be allowed to import duty-free his book published in England, "Catlin's Letters and Notes on the Manners and Customs of the North American Indians." This report gives valuable information about the book: it contains nearly 400 steel plate engravings, that the American edition (printed in England) is 1000 copies, which he wants to import in sheets (i.e. unbound). He describes the great expense and "some hazard of life" which went into compiling this work, and "the author has explored new fields of interesting and curious knowledge. He may have rescued from oblivion incidents of aboriginal life, customs, manners, names, and nations, which the people of the United States are interested in preserving in their recollection, and handing down to posterity."
