About this Item: Philadelphia, etc.: C. & A. Conrad, et al., 1808., 1808. 8vo., (9 x 6 inches). (Spotted and browned, title-page torn with minor loss to one corner not affecting the text). Contemporary red roan backed marbled paper boards, uncut (extremities a bit worn). Provenance: Perforated library stamp of John Crerar Library on title-page. "THE FIRST EXTENSIVE ACCOUNT OF CALIFORNIA PUBLISHED IN THE US BY AN AMERICAN VISITOR" (Hart) First edition. Shaler sailed from Canton to the mouth of the Columbia River between February and May of 1804, from there he cruised down the coast to Guatemala, and so was the first U.S. citizen to give account of California. He was favorably impressed: "The conquest of this country would be absolutely nothing; it would fall without an effort to the most inconsiderable force; and as the greatest efforts that the Spanish government would be capable of making towards its recovery would be from shores of New Spain, opposite the peninsula" (page 161). Shaler was involved in the China trade in the 1790s, traded furs on the Northwest Coast, lived in Hawaii from 1803-1804, served as a special agent of the U.S. in Havana, on President Madison's orders he fomented revolution in Texas, and then acted as a peace-maker in the war of 1812. Forbes, Hawaiian National Bibliography 396. Companion to California, p. 400; see also Hart's American Images of Spanish California, pp. 2 & 38-39). Hill 1555 (citing reprint). Howes S324.
