This is the N2 series reprinted in a large format ,but note the slight change in name from "American Indian Chiefs" to "The American Indians" While this is a very popular set with collectors, it's very hard to complete because of cost and scarcity . Since the spectacular lithography for the first set was done by lindner, Eddy, & Clauss, this one probably was also, although it doesn't indicate that on the card. The Native American scenes depicted on the front are beautiful and unique while the portraits are from " The collection in the department of the interior at Washington , D.C." The set was issued in 1888 .
(Fronts) The portrait on each card is accompanied by the individual's name and tribe . The surrounding scene , however, carries no identification . A white border frames the card.
(Backs) The set's title appears at the top of each card back; underneath is the line "Authentic Portraits of 50 Celebrated Indian Chiefs ." The note about the interior Department and Allen & Ginter ad also appear on each card back . This is all printed with a picture of a rising sun and a tomahawk as background.
