About this Item

First printing of this important account (on pages 137-175) of a voyage to the Columbia River from Canton, and along the west coast of America; 8vo, pp. vii, [1], 583; recent half tan calf antique, red morocco label on spine; top of title page neatly clipped away, else fine in a nice new binding. Forbes 96: "After trading [at the Columbia River], Shaler followed the west coast of America down to Guatemala, returning to California early in 1805. The narrative has a lengthy description of the settlements in California an aspects of his commercial trading up and down that coast . Shaler arrived in Hawaii August 19, 1805, and continued to Oahu September 1, later trading at Waimea, Kauai . He gives a good general physical description of the islands, and comments on the religious and political structure . This narrative is particularly important for its comments on Kamehameha, his politics and plans for territorial expansion, and the political intrigues between Kamehameha and Kaumualii in which Shaler had a part." Howes S-324; Judd 160. Bookseller Inventory # 41953
