I have the 1995 first American edition. Since I first looked at Native masks in the 1970's at The Canadian Embassy in London (and got hooked on Demsey Bob), I have been fascinated with the masking traditions of The Northwest Coast First people. This has masks by the legendary Freda Diesling, Beau Dick, Robert Davidson, Demsey Bob (drool), et al. masks I have seen but never could afford. Set the tone of my education.
