In the late 18th and early 19th centuries titled and educated French and German visitors to North America developed a new belief in their affinity with the warrior elites of Indian societies. This study relates how an aristocratic discourse on American Indians emerged during that period, discussing lesser travellers as well as major figures such as Chateaubriand, Toqueville and Maximilian of Wied, and offering fresh evidence of the creation of a post-Revolutionary 'aristocratic' culture through overseas travel. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge. Off-mint.
