Description:

1864 - 1865, 110pp, printed in double columns, illustrated with 79 characteristic Harper's engravings, moderate general wear at issues, a couple of the spines are chipped and splitting, issues have tiny address labels at front wraps, very occasional scattered foxing, issues include volume XXIX, Nos. 173 & 174, October / November, 1864, and volume XXX, Nos. 175, 176, 177, & 178, December, 1864, and January / Feburary / March, 1865. The author's six-part account of his tour through the Arizona country. These pieces would be collected by Harper & Brothers and published in 1869 as Adventures In The Apache Country: A Tour Through Arizona And Sonora With Notes On The Silver Regions Of Nevada. It would be reprinted by Harper's in 1874, and again in 1878. From Eberstadt, "No other work gives so vivid or such an accurate account of the country, and of the terrors which then attended border life in Arizona, where one-twentieth of the population had been swept away by the attacks of the Apaches in three years." See Howes B-875, Graff 437, Wagner-Camp 412, Field 197, and Sabin 8656 for book reference. Illustrations include a view of the Mission of San Jose De Tumacacori, a rocky mesa on the Gila, silver mines in the Santa Rita Mountains, a view of Tucson, a Pimo indian, a view of San Pedro, a view of Wilmington, the Canyon of San Felippe, a view of Fort Yuma, a Yuma indian, a group of Yuma chiefs, Pimo indian girls, Castle Dome, a distant view of Gila City, a view of a mission camp and Corunnasim Peak, Antelope Peak, Mesa Tower, the scene of the Oatman Massacre, grisly scenes of an Apache hanging and an Apache crucified, a view of White's Mill, a Pimo village, a varsoma and hampta, a Pimo woman grinding wheat, a Pimo widow in mourning, a view of El Pecacho, a view of the painted rock on the Gila, a close-up view of the paintings on the rocks of Gila, a view of Casas Grandas, Papago Chief Captain Jose, a view of San Xavier Del Bac, Bill Rhodes' ranch, a scene of Tubac, the Boundary Monument, and numerous others of general interest. Very scarce thus. Bookseller Inventory #
