Synopsis: First published 1987. Hardcover with dust jacket. Dust jacket shows a little light rubbing on corners and spine area from shelf wear. Alan Vance Briceland, Author. University Press of Virginia, Charlottesville. Printed in the USA. Approximate size, 6.25 x 9.25. Total 227 pages. The boards are a cloth, red color and the book corners are sharp, exterior is clean. The book itself is clean and does contain some highlights scattered throughout the book and a few ink words or notations on some pages where highlighted to clarify a certain paragraph or sentence, actually they are helpful notes. All pages intact with none torn. The author, Alan Briceland " challenges the historical interpretation of early southern colonial expansion westward, which has been based on four recorded 17th century explorations of the interior undertaken by Virginians. The accounts of Edward Bland (1650), John Lederer (1670), Thomas Batts and Robert Fallam (1671), and James Needham and Gabriel Arthur (1673) are so cryptic in their descriptions that they have given rise to various interpretations of the routes traveled and the locations of Indian villages visited. This book examines anew these explorations and the motives that produced them." An excellent read and chocked full of interesting information that one just might not know about. The spine is tight and straight. The dust jacket does have a small tear at the top of the jacket near the spine and some light rubbing on the corners, not badly. This price is one of the best out there for this hard to locate book. Add this one to your collection before it gets away. *2BC5
