About this Item: A. O. P. NICHOLSON, PUBLIC PRINTER, Washington, D. C., 1854. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Third issue of first edition,Text volume and Atlas volume. Former is xv, 320 pp., 22.5 x 14 cm., 65 plates on unnumbered leaves some folding, [[Botanical Print XVIII (which should show _Abronia cycloptera_ according to the plate list on page 304 was never present in this volume NOR in my copy of the first issue WCB 226:1. Thus I suspect it was not issued.]] The binding of the text volume is absolutely sound although the original stitching is sloppy. Separate atlas with two large folding maps. [Goetzmann p. 213; Howes M276; WCB 226:3; Graff 2675; Meisel III p. 144; Rader 2346n; Sabin 44512; the two large folding maps are MTW 791, 792] Maps 69 x 150 and 41 x 86 cm. Small water stain on top of back few pages. Original brown blind stamped cloth, corners of text volume bumped, edges and spine ends worn. Spine of atlas detaching on one side. Plates in exceptionally fine condition. Maps with separation at several intersecting folds without paper loss, but the maps are fragile. Comparatively very good . There are numerous lithographed plates (some lightly tinted) of views, botany, zoology, paleontology, geology, and geography executed by Ackerman. "Written by one of the greatest nineteenth-century American explorers, this is one of the most interesting accounts of an original exploration of unknown parts of Texas [Marcy] was the first Anglo-American to discover and explore Palo Duro Canyon and Tule Canyon. Marcy described in detail the little-known Wichita tribe and compiled the first Wichita dictionary" (Jenkins, 'Basic Texas Books' 135B). "[Marcy's] large map was an attempt not only to bring together information obtained from his own explorations, but to show the relation of that country to the areas lying to the north, south and west, as far as the Colorado River of the West. Marcy's map is one of the best of the period. No southern emigrant could afford to be without it" (TMW #791 & #792, Vol. III, pp. 15-16). Captain Marcy, "a veteran of the Mexican War who had made an 1849 reconnaissance from Fort Smith to Santa Fe, argued that the Red River, formerly an international frontier and now the boundary between Texas and Indian Territory, was too important for its source to remain unknown to the government. The War Department agreed and designated him to "collect and report everything that may be useful or interesting in relation to [the region's] resources, soil, climate, natural history, and geography." The Adjutant General also ordered him to remind any Indians that he encountered of the military power of the United States and the certainty of punishment if they continued to resist Anglo immigration and to determine whether the area could sustain a large Indian population and, if so, could they be induced to settle down and take up farming. He undertook the survey, noting that it was "remarkable that a portion of one of the largest and most important rivers in the United States remained up to that period wholly unexplored and unknown a 'terra incognita.' " "While Marcy was ultimately unsuccessful in finding the true headwaters of the Red, he did accomplish some of his other goals and, in the process, provided the first lithographic documentation of the unexplored and dramatic Palo Duro Canyon, in fact the first of the great southwestern canyons to be documented and published for a popular audience" (Dr. Ron Tyler reported by Dorothy Sloan).
