Of the early reports of the Bureau of Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution, one of the most significant is Col. Garrick Mallery’s report on the picture-writing of the American Indians. Except for a special section on petroglyphs (rock-writing) most of the examples are roughly contemporary with the writing of the report and were gathered bij ethnologists, explorers, and expeditions to reservations. As such, the emphasis is on the meaning and pictures, and the differences between the styles of picture-writing of the various tribes. Its wealth of pictorial material is not to be found anywhere else.
