Book Description Allied Printing Co., Milwaukee. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good +. No Jacket. First Edition. Small tear upper spine, spot over staple. Pictorial wrappers, 151 pp., frontis., preface, illustrated. Milwaukee: Allied Printing Company. n.d. (c. 1911). Staples pulled from front cover and first page but booklet is tight and in very good condition overall. No date or publisher on obverse. There is in small imprint at the bottom of the front wrap that indicates the Allied Printing Company, Trades (Union Label) Council, Milwaukee 20. First edition according to Howes A93 although there seems to be some confusion as to the actual date of the first edition which varies from 1876 to 1920. John Gordon took a party into the Black Hills in 1874 in defiance of Government orders following Custer earlier expedition in which he had reported finding gold. Howes A 94 says "Narrative by one of twenty-eight members of Gordon's gold-seeking expedition of 1874, made in defiance of government orders." Graff 26 says "Although the Federal government had denied civilians access to the gold fields discovered in the Black Hills by Custer's command in 1874, Charles Collins, editor of the Sioux City Times, organized a party of twenty-eight adventurers to prospect. They established Gordon's Stockade on French Creek. It was disbanded by Federal troops in 1875." Jennewein 96 says ""We found gold about wherever we dug along the valley of French Creek, about as good in one place as another, reported Aken. In February, two of the party, Gordon and Wicher, started for Sioux City with samples of gold, and in March four men started for Cheyenne. In April the remaining members were escorted out of the Hills by the U. S. Cavalry and returned to Sioux City by way of Fort Laramie and Cheyenne." "The Aken book is important for it describes the efforts of the first group of private citizens to make the Hills their home. It contains valuable detail and is frequently marked with anecdote and circumstance of a lighter order." HOWES A94. GRAFF 26. JENNEWEIN 96. A nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # HB00165

Book Description Aken?, Milwaukee?, 1920. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 3-151 p. illus. port. group. 17 cm. No date or place of publication, but probably Milwaukee in the first decade of the 20th century. Original tan wraps with a sketch of the expedition on the front cover (covered wagons with "O'Neil Colony" on the canvas of the wagons). The delicate paper on the spine has worn thin, but the tiny printer's device can still be read on the front cover ("Allied Printing, Milwaukee"). A very good copy of a very interesting account of the early settlement of the Black Hills. Aken was a member of one of the first expeditions to the Black Hills of Dakota Territory following the Custer expedition of 1876. Several sketches of the expedition's adventures plus a frontis photograph of the ten members of the trip (all with their rifles still in hand). A rare and very interesting little book.
