30 AVERKIEVA, Julia SHERMAN, Mark A. HOLM, Bill Kwakiutl String Figures. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Washington Press / American Museum of Natural History, Seattle and London / New York , 1992, ISBN:029597172X 
AVERKIEVA, Julia and Mark A. SHERMAN. Kwakiutl String Figures. Seattle and London : University of Washington Press / New York : American Museum of Natural History, (1992). First Edition. Pp (5),[vi]-xxxi,(3),3-199,(1). Partlydouble column. Square 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to spine. No 71 in Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History series. With Foreword by Bill Holm. "Of the games people play, string figures afford nearly universal amusement, appearing in more cultures than any other. But although over 2,000 individual patterns have been recorded world-wide since1888, when anthropologist Franz Boas first described a pair of Eskimo "cat 's cradles," very few studies have explored North American Indian string figures. This intriguing volume publishes for the first time 102 string figures and 10 string tricks collected among the Kwakiutl Indians by Julia Averkieva, a young visiting Soviet scholar who accompanied Boas on his 1930 expedition to Vancouver Island. When she returned to Leningrad, Averkieva left her unpublished monograph with Boas, whose heirs eventually sent it to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Averkieva's study represents the most comprehensive Native American string collection ever assembled from a single tribe. In addition to characterizing the social conditions that prompted string figure making among the Kwakiutl during the time of her field study, Averkieva noted step-by-step instructions for each figure and transcribed traditional accompanying chants. In editing and expanding Averkieva's manuscript, Mark Sherman addresses string figure enthusiasts as well as cultural anthropologists. Sherman includes in his introduction a complete description of basic openings and string figure moves. For each Kwakiutl figure he has prepared clear illustrations based on Averkieva's original photographs and pencil sketches. In addition he has tested each figure for workability, clarifying instructions where necessary and recasting them in Rivers and Haddon's standard terminology" from the dj Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
