8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Volume I only, 416 pages unusual with two folding maps: first is Minnay Sotor on St. Peter's River with a 1" closed tear; second is A [clothbacked] Map of the United States and Adjacent British Provinces, date 1846 by Richard Bentley, frontispiece is litho plate. Very nice condition with some soiling on clothside. This volume is as readable today as it was when issued a century and a half ago as it describes travel and discovery, the fur trappers, their relationship with Indian women, missionaries and the Fox and Mississippi Rivers extending to the Dakota border where he meets with Sioux. A scarce item especially with the two maps present and in good condition. The book has edgewear along outer joints and corners but in a nice tight binding. Howes F-67; Sabin 23959.
