About this Item

In Two Volumes. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's original blue-green cloth with paper spine labels. Large fold out map at the front of each volume, consisting of "A Map of the Sources of the Colorado & Big Salt Lake, Platte, Yellow-Stone, Muscle-Shell, Missouri; & Salmon & Snake Rivers, branches of the Columbia River" [Vol. I] and a "Map of the Territory West of the Rocky Mountains" [Vol. II]. BAL's binding variant A [no priority] with no terminal catalogue in Volume Two. The front hinges of both volumes are cracking but are still held by one [vol. 1] or more [vol. 2] cords. The maps have a few closed tears, mostly along the folds, but are essentially without loss. The spine labels are rubbed and that on volume two is chipped. The bindings are rubbed as well with some wear to the spine tips and at a couple of places along the joints. Internally, there is some light to moderate foxing and some offsetting to the title-pages from the maps. A good unsophisticated set, not commonly encountered with both maps intact. The maps, actively collected in and of themselves, represent "the best available information on the Pacific slope at the end of the major fur trade explorations" [J. L. Allen., North American Exploration]. BAL 10151. Bookseller Inventory # 000160
