"The definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent" (Wagner-Camp). "Beyond the Missouri River there lay a vast and largely unexplored territory which bordered on the western reaches of the United States. Ceded by France to Spain in 1762 and then back to France in 1800 it was at this period visited only by some British and a few French trappers. The importance of exploring this area had been evident to Thomas Jefferson as early as 1783, when he had proposed the project to George Rogers Clark; but it was not until twenty yearts later that Jefferson, then President of the United States, saw the realization of his idea. The purchase of the Louisiana Territory from France in December 1803 greatly increased the importance of the expedition, which finally began its long journey to the headwaters of the Missouri in May of the following year. That year they wintered in the Mandan villages in the Dakotas and in the Spring pushed on west across the Rocky Mountains and then down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean. Returning by the same route nearly two-and-a-half years after they had set out they arrived back at St. Louis in September 1806 to the amazed delight of the nation which had given them up for lost. Though unsuccessful in their attempt to find a transcontinental water route, they had demonstrated the feasibility of overland travel to the western coast" (PMM). Graff 2477.

Book Description: Philadelphia: Bradford & Inskeep, 1814, 1814. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. LEWIS AND CLARK, WITH THE SECOND IMPRESSION OF THE MAP. Two volumes. 5 plates; second impression of the large folding map. Original printed boards, backed in calf at an early date. Boards quite worn, foxed. Very rare in original condition. FIRST EDITION. “The definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent” (Wagner-Camp-Becker). This book is “the most important of all overland narratives . . . American explorers had for the first time spanned the continental United States and driven the first wedge in the settlement of our new far western frontier” (Grolier 100 American Books). Many of the 1417 copies printed were issued without the map, which was available at a premium, and the map has disappeared from others. This set is accompanied by the second impression of the map, handsomely framed. The map was printed from the original copper plate in 1979 for the American Philosophical Society in an edition of 160 copies on fine rag paper. We understand that the plate suffered and that no further printings will be made. Engraved from Clark’s manuscript, this map showing the 8000-mile trek is one of the greatest landmarks American cartographic history. “More accurate than any previous western map, it rapidly became the source for a new generation of western maps” (Schwartz and Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America, p. 227). Sets of Lewis and Clark in the original printed boards, untrimmed, are very scarce. Printing and the Mind of Man 272. Grolier 100 American Books 30. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-12590414257

Original publisher's tree sheep, red leather lettering pieces on spines. With the large engraved FOLDING MAP from an early printing (1842, which is the second earliest map available only after the 1817 Dublin edition), as well as the eastern one fifth of the original map, and 5 engraved plans and charts.

Short closed marginal tear, volume I, page 61 and 119 and volume II, page 201, none affecting text. The folding map was not issued with all copies and actually was separately priced, nearly as much as the book. Thomas Jefferson had first proposed exploring the west to George Rogers Clark in 1783. The Louisiana Purchase of 1803 spurred Jefferson to implement his idea - Lewis and Clark covered nearly 8 thousand miles in just over 28 months. Their hope was to find a water route across the continent, but they did not. "The definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent." (Wagner-Camp 13, Howes L-317).
