About this Item

Large 8vo, pp. 608. Bound in original 1/2 brown morocco, AEG, some minor foxing, a very nice tight copy. Illustrated with 40 full page wood engraved plates, some tinted or in color. Sabin 20555. Howes D-410. cfWagner-Camp 356:2. cfClark III 305. cfCowan p. 70. cfField 444. cfGraff 1121. Domenech was a missionary in Texas and Mexico and chaplain and almoner in the service of Maximilien, Emperor of Mexico. He wrote a number of works on the American southwest and the American Indian, including a rather unfortunate treatise which seriously discredited his scholarly abilities. This particular work is based on a number of sources, including an earlier book Missionary Adventures in Texas and Mexico, but it is chiefly a compilation from Pacific Railroad reports, from which some of the plates were also taken. Other plates are lifted from the work of George Catlin. Parts of the text relate to Texas, New Mexico, California, Utah, Oregon, Louisiana, Minnesota, &c., with some mention of Canada. There are sections on Indian antiquities; and descriptions of the various tribes, customs, languages, religions, &c. Bookseller Inventory # 39537
