The latest addition to the peerless Library of Congress American Memory collection is a complete collection of the images included in Edward S. Curtis's The North American Indian, "one of the most significant and controversial representations of traditional American Indian culture ever produced." Originally published in 20 volumes between 1907 and 1930, the work contained over 1,500 illustrations and more than 700 portfolio plates, all of which are featured at the site. Visitors may search the collection by keyword or browse by subject, Native American tribe or geographic location, or volume. Images are presented as thumbnails with a few notes. A special presentation on the site seeks to place Curtis and his volumes in context.
