    This publication is quite rare. It offers the collector an unparalleled view of Pomo weaving in the early 20th century.

    This Special Issue of Expedition Magazine from the Penn Museum accompanied the very important exhibit of the same name. Utilizing the well-documented Deisher Collection of Pomo basketry at Penn Museum, this exhibit features Pomo weavers with their baskets, which are among the finest baskets ever woven. Deisher was a rare collector in his day who insisted that detailed weaver information accompany any baskets that he purchased.

    "Pomo Indian Basket Weavers, Weavers and the Art Market" traveled to the Grace Hudson Museum, the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, the George Gustav Heye Center of the National Museum of the American Indian, and the Penn Museum.
