Third Revised Edition – During the Victorian Era in Berks County, Pennsylvania, a group of gentlemen and farmers shared their findings of the various Native American artifacts collected by them. David Benton Brunner, a schoolteacher, collector, and later Congressman, compiled the history of recorded native activity in the county and curated the best artifacts for display in this book, The Indians of Berks County. Originally published in 1881, this book contains dozens of woodcut illustrations by the author of the finest specimens, arranged by category. He notes the locations where the artifacts were found and by whom. He also includes a list of all significant collectors in the county, their locations, and the quantities of artifacts acquired by category. Brunner’s book was revised in 1897 and now, again, for the first time in nearly 125 years. This revised third edition contains corrections and updates, a new foreword, the bibliography used by Brunner, an extensive index, and an afterword detailing some of the prominent collectors involved in the project besides the author. This book is a classic for relic collectors or those interested in Native American or colonial history.
