Learn more about the Vincent Price Ledger Book

The group of drawings from the Vincent Price Ledger Book date back to the earliest pre-reservation phase of Plains Indian Ledger Art. The book was named after the American actor Vincent Price, who acquired this rare collection of eighty-six Ledger Drawings in the early 1950s. The drawings in the Vincent Price Ledger Book date from about 1875 to 1878, the period immediately following the Indian Wars, and primarily depict the war exploits of Cheyenne warriors during that time of intense conflicts with the US Cavalry. The name glyphs present in the book tentatively identify known Cheyenne warriors such as Jumping Rabbit, Two Crows, Black Horse, Starving Elk and Ma Nim Ick (Eagle Head), the father of Ho Na Nist To (Howling Wolf), one of the most accomplished ledger artists of the period.
