Artist: Darley, Felix Octavius Carr, 1822-1888
Physical Description: 3 items (1 box)
Produced: approximately 1841-1843.
Scope and Content: Collection of 3 original drawings by American illustrator Felix Octavius Carr Darley. One pen and ink drawing is titled "Indian Dance." This drawing is signed "F.O.C. Darley 1841". However, it is signed below "F.O.C. Darley 1843.” A note on the back in pencil reads, "I don’t know why Dr. Darley has given two dates – I fancy it was drawn in 1841 and published in 1843 – There is a book of these Indian outlines.” The second pen and ink drawing includes the caption “Page 74; vol. 3 The young chief […?].” The third drawing, also pen and ink, includes the caption “Throw away Huron! He cried or your tomahawk will forget its arind”. Vol. 3 page 248.” This is a line from James Fenimore Cooper’s The Deerslayer. These drawings appear in Darley’s Scenes in Indian Life.
