1871 NATIVE AMERICAN COMANCHE INDIAN ALBUMEN PHOTO WIFE OF CHIEF SILVER KNIFE:
$170

Very Rare, ca1871, Alexander Gardner, Large Format, Albumen Photograph of a Native American Comanche Indian Woman - the wife of Chief Silver Knife. This outstanding, large size, Albumen Photograph carries the imprint of William Henry Jackson and is mounted on a card mount with the 1871 Hayden Expedition imprint at the top.


While Jackson was the official photographer for the U. S. Geological Survey Expedition led by Professor Ferdinand Hayden and traveled with the Expedition through what would become Yellowstone National Park, Jackson incorporated the Native American Indian portraits of a number of other photographers (including taken by Charles Milton Bell and Alexander Gardner) in his 1875 catalogue of views made before and during his work with the Hayden Survey included more than 2,000 items. While the Image offered here was issued as part of the documentation of the 1871 Expedition to Yellowstone, it was actually taken by Gardner when Silver Knife and his wife visited Washington, D.C.


This wonderful, Native American Indian Photograph measures approx. 5" x 7 1/2" and is mounted on its original, cream colored, "Hayden Survey" card mount (overall size of card mount is approx. 10" x 14"). Although the mark of William Henry Jackson is printed on the card mount at the lower left, this Photograph was taken by Alexander Gardner and pictures the elderly wife of Comanche Chief Silver Knife. Silver Knife (Tosawi alternatively Toshaway, or Toshua) was a Penateka Comanche chief. He was deemed "cooperative" by William Babcock Hazen. He is best known for an alleged exchange with Philip Sheridan where Sheridan purportedly stated "The only good Indians I ever saw were dead", which has often been rephrased as "the only good Indian is a dead Indian." Sheridan denied ever making either statement.


This rare and wonderful, original, large format, Albumen Photograph is in very good condition. The Photo itself is complete and intact with no tears, edge wear, chipping or physical damage or repairs of any kind except for a tiny edge tear at the center right affecting the margin area only. It exhibits sharp focus, strong contrast and rich tonality. There are a series of 7 spots of staining around the perimeter of the Photograph which have been caused by the original adhesive used to affix the Photo to the card mount. The mount has some soiling and some rippling due moisture along the top edge and some wear at the top edge also. With a quality matting and framing, this VERY rare, larger size Native American Comanche Indian Photograph will display very nicely.


A very rare and important, ca1871, large format, Albumen Photograph of a Native American Comanche Indian Woman and a fantastic addition to any collection!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges and the "Detailed Seller Rating" Star System:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.

We have NEVER requested response from our customers as we were taught that "fishing for compliments" was impolite but the new Detailed Rating System has put us in a rather tight spot. Most buyers are unaware that bases a monthly fee discount on a Seller's "Star" rating. A monthly average of "4.6 Stars" (in any one of the four "Star" categories) costs us approximately $400 in additional Fees - that's $400 above what we would pay if we had a "4.8 Star" average in all 4 "Star" categories!! As a consequence we hope you do not find us rude to ask that if you are happy with our items, our service, and our packing & shipping please be sure to use the "Star" rating system and remember that a "5 Star" rating is the only way we can qualify for 's fee reduction program. ,

International Buyers – Please Note:


Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.


Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding or buying.
