Book Description D. Appleton and Co.,, New York:, 1871. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good plus. 1st ed. 330 pp. First edition; maroon, textured cloth; decorative gilt stamped upper cover; gilt stamped spine; light yellow endpapers; fp. with tissue guard; eight plates; one fold-out map. Binding tight; boards clean; internally very light foxing; see additional images provided. Quoting Borba 605: "Myers was a member of the Smithsonian Institute's expedition in 1867. Orton also took part in it. The expedition separated into two groups: one penetrated the Amazon from Caracas through the Orinoco and Rio Negro; the other reached the Amazon from the Andes through Quito and the Napo River. This work describes the journey of the first group, with two chapters devoted to the River Amazon. Quoting the Preface, "The following pages are a narrative of a scientific expedition from Williams College to the tropical regions of South America. The Lyceum of Natural History of this institution has sent out several expeditions to different localities that presented themselves as favorable fields for new and interesting research. The one whose history is given in this volume was sent out in the summer of 1867. The expedition is under deep indebtedness to the Smithsonian Institution, which provided instruments for making meteorological observations, and secured transportation of collections, besides giving essential aid in other ways. We desire to express our kindest thanks to Dr. Asa Gray, for the identification of many of our plants. . . Bookseller Inventory # 3470
