An unusually fine copy, very handsome and beautifully preserved. The original bindings in excellent condition, the text-blocks clean and sound, the maps in excellent order. Extremely rare in this condition. A VERY RARE THREE-DECKER LEWIS AND CLARKE IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION. The account of the most famous exploring expedition in American history. Lewis and Clarke set out from the Mississippi-Missouri confluence for the purpose of establishing trade ties with the Indians of the region; they achieved their goal and in doing so expanded tremendously the geographical knowledge of the area. This account dispelled much of the ignorance about the West and is "one of the most interesting narratives of North American exploration in existence" (Hill, p. 180). "This edition was edited by Thomas Rees. It is a reproduction in larger type and on better paper,of the Philadelphia edition of 1814,omitting the `Observations on the Government of the Indians,' by Captain Lewis,and the eight meteorological tables." -Sabin 40830. "First authorized and complete account of the most important western exploration and the first of many overland narratives to follow." -Howes L317. Bookseller Inventory # 19431
