Here's an example. Despite the presence of what we now consider to be the modern Chief Wahoo on the cover of the 1949 book, the title page has the earlier, large-nosed version (below).
That same version of the Chief is found in a great Vernors ad (below) that also features multiple appearances of the iconic soft drink's gnome mascot.
Here are some more examples of the earlier Chief Wahoo design (below) from the book.
Lastly, here's a unique, head-on view of the more "modern" Chief Wahoo atop a totem pole (below).this fascinating piece by Brad Ricca.
