Two very decorative lithograph by J. Trentsensky (1793-1839), from “Trentsensky’s Peoples Costumes” showing Indigenous Canadians and Americans, based on a design by Moritz von Schwind, 1824.

This was after a design by John White (1540-1593) who was commissioned to draw the inhabitants of the new world. He accompanied the expedition of Sir Ralph Lane, and founded the first English Colony in North America in Roanoke Island. His watercolour sketches of the surrounding landscape and the native Algonkin peoples are the most informative illustrations of a Native American society of the Eastern seaboard.

Size 23 x 33 cm each. Condition Very Good.
