There are two Title Pages -- one for the reprint and one for the Government Printing Office. There are 39 numbered color plates beginning with II and ending with XXXIX. There does not seem to be a Plate I. The Hopi Indians represent their gods in several ways, one of which is by wearing masks or garments bearing symbols that are regarded as characteristic of those beings. The symbols depicted on these masks and garments very considerably, but are readily recognized and identified by the Indians. At each festival in which these supernatural beings are impersonated, the symbols are repainted, and continued practice has led to a high development of this kind of artistic work, many of the Indians having become expert in painting the symbols characteristic of the gods. Believing that a series of pictures made by the cleverest artists among the Hopis would be a valuable means of studying the symbolism of the tribe, the author hired one of them to make him a series of drawings of all the personations of supernatural beings which appear in Hopi festivals. The author found several Hopi men competent to paint a collection of pictures of the kind desired, and finally chose for that work Kutcahonauu, or White-bear, a man about 30 years old, who was believed to be the ablest of all who were considered.
