First edition of the story of the discovery of an unknown valley in the interior of Panama, the finding of mysterious white Indians and a war in the bush led by a white man against Panama's soldiers. The Marsh Exploring Expedition to Darien, a region in Panama, barely visited before by a white person, was sent out by the Smithsonian. John L. Baer, to whom this book is dedicated, was engaged in collecting anthropological material for the Museum when attacked by jungle fever. Richard Marsh later went on to draft the Declaration of Independence and Human Rights of the Tule people (Kuna or Guna). His collection of diaries, photos, correspondence and films were donated to the Smithsonian Institution in 1997 by his son, and occupy 4 linear feet of shelf space. Provenance: Monsignor Joseph M. Gleason (1869-1942) was a Californian Catholic priest, educationalist, historian and collector of photographs and books, with a particular focus on travel. Bookseller Inventory # 2090835
