About this Item

HUGHES, John T. Doniphan's Expedition; Containing an Account of the Conquest of New Mexico; General Kearney's Overland Expedition to California; Doniphan's Campaign Against the Navajos. Cincinnati: U.P. James, [1847]. 144pp. Frontis., occasional illustrations throughout. Later 3/4 gilt-ruled red morocco and marbled boards, gilt-decorated raised spine bands, compartments ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers, T.e.g. Original pictorial wrappers bound in. Fine. Howes H-769. Wagner-Camp 134:6. Graff 2006. Rittenhouse 311. One of the classic, primary works on the campaign of the First Missouri Cavalry in New Mexico and Chihuahua. "The narrative is a valuable adjunct to the literature of overland travel, Doniphan's march being one of the most famous in history and the author an actual participant. The chapters on the march to California of Kearney's Army of the West, the battles en route and there, and of affairs on the west coast during the Revolution, contain one of the earliest accounts of these world-shaking events to appear in print" - Eberstadt. The first edition (which is extremely rare) appeared in 1847, and by 1851 more than 14,000 copies had been sold. The precendence of the various printings and revised printings was long a bibliographic mystery, now nicely summarized in Wagner-Camp-Becker. This printing, with U.P. James listed as the sole publisher, without date, is ascribed by Wagner-Camp-Becker to the period following the dissolution of the partnership of J.A. and U.P. James in July of 1854. With the bookplate of noted Western collector Frank P. Hadley. Bookseller Inventory # 41457
