McCLUNG, John A. Sketches of Western Adventure: Containing an Account of the Most Interesting Incidents Connected with the Settlement of the West from 1755 to 1794. Maysville, Ky., 1832. 360pp. 12mo. Half title. Very good untrimmed copy in orig. calf-backed boards. Howes M-46, "aa." Streeter Sale 1666. Sabin 43052. Thomson 745. Vaughan 191. Ayer 189. The very rare first edition of this miscellany of tales of the opening of the dark and bloody ground of Kentucky. One of the prime sources of the Daniel Boone tale, the work went through multiple later editions. Thomson calls it "the most complete collection of captivities and adventures ever published in one volume." The present copy contains the half title, which was lacking in the Streeter copy.
