About this Item

614 pp. Brown cloth, with wear to the covers, printed paper spine label, and scattered foxing to pages. There are several drawings, all in pencil, probably by a child, to the free endpapers and the backs of the plates. This is the first issue without the folding map. The House issue without the large folding map is the true first edition. Overall, a good copy. First edition, House issue. Emory¿s rank is given as ¿Lieut. Colonel¿ rather than ¿Brevet Major.¿ Zamorano Eighty 33: ¿Emory¿s report contains numerous folding maps of the areas described, and 64 lithograph plates of views and of botanical and natural history subjects. It is source material for the Southwest and the Mexican border. A library of Western Americana is incomplete without it.¿ Howes E145: ¿That the House edition has priority is indicated by the fact that many copies were seemingly issued before the large map was available.¿.
