Edward Curtis Original Copper Plates

Curtis chose to illustrate his twenty-volume and twenty-portfolio masterwork, The North American Indian, with photogravures.  In this process a copper plate was chemically etched to different depths in proportion to the darkness of the image of the original negative print.  To create the photogravure, one copper plate was created to ink individually and run through a hand press.  No multiple image copper plates were ever created, each image is a one of kind offering.
