  • Description The Antiquities of Wisconsin, Increase A. Lapham's most important published work, was the result of his interest in the Indian effigy mounds found on Wisconsin's Landscape. His research for the work was funded by the American Antiquarian Society and it was published in the Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge series. Antiquities includes 92 pages of text, illustrated with 61 wood engravings, and 55 lithographed plates. For a sampling of other works by and about Increase Lapham, including an extensive biographical sketch, visit the Wisconsin Electronic Reader, another digital resource from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries.
