DESCRIPTION:   Celebrated Chippeway Chief. Painted at Green Bay. Lithographed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia after life drawings by J. O. Lewis.

The Aboriginal Port-Folio of James Otto Lewis was, as he himself advertised, the first attempt to publish a portrait series of Indians involved in the treaty-making of the 1820s and early 1830s. Lewis was hired by the federal government to accompany Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan to the treaty sites to make a visual record. Despite the historic importance of Lewis' artistic legacy, it was eclipsed shortly after its publication in 1834-36 by the more polished productions of George Catlin and McKenney and Hall. Precisely because of the Port-Folio's commercial failure, complete sets are rare today and even individual plates are scarce. Howes, U.S.iana, L-315.
