This book is a purchase from the Frank T. Siebert sale.  Siebert was a pathologist and scholar of Penobscot Indian linguistics.  He amassed one of the largest and most complete collections of books on North American Indian linguistics ever known.  His collection was dispersed at auction by Sotheby’s in 1999 after his death in 1998.

Native American Indian linguistics is a subject that Smithsonian Institution Libraries is committed to collecting.  Catalog records for other Indian readers our collection can be found in SIRIS, the Smithsonian Institution Research Information System catalog.
