About this Item

MILFORT, LE CLERC. Memoire ou Coup-D'Oeil Rapide sur mes Differens Voyages et mon Sejour dans la Nation Creck. Paris, 1802. [2], 324 [of 332] p. Uncut, in early marbled wrappers. An imperfect copy, lacking the last four leaves and with the half title clipped and mounted to the front wrapper. Sadly, it is otherwise a lovely, fresh copy. In a neat portfolio and slipcase. First edition. An imperfect copy. The narrative of a rather extraordinary French adventurer in the Mississippi Valley and among the Upper Creek Indians in the 1770s and 1780s. Amid hyperbole and possibly some fabrication, we find a fascinating description of the region and its inhabitants. Monaghan, after calling Milfort a liar, states "his book is one of the most interesting and curious books of French travel in America in the eighteenth century." Howes M599 ("b"); Streeter Sale 1529; Monaghan 1073; Servies & Servies 761; Graff 2792; Field 1065. Bookseller Inventory # 161
