Edited by John Elihu Hall (1783-1829) from 1816 - 1827, this monthly periodical founded by Joseph Dennie (1768 - 1812) was considered the foremost American literary publication of its kind, especially under Dennie's tenure as editor.

About this Item: John Watts, Philadelphia, 1806. Hardcover. Condition: Fair. No Jacket. 1st Edition. This book is well worn and has been exposed to moisture as several of the pages near the end and beginning show damp stain at the edges. There is not title page so we do not know who bound the periodicals between these boards. The boards themselves are terribly scuffed and rubbed, it is badly worn at all edges. It is, however, complete and square with all pages in places and readable. All pages are toned with periodicals numbers 3 and 4 quite dark (but still very legible). The one-quarter binding had brown leather on the spine, but the back strip has dried out and is chipped at the top and bottom. The former owner, R Blanton, has a bookplate and his name and doodles in several places on the end papers. He apparently bought the book around 1854 from Essex & Sons in Lexington, MA.

Expedition to the Rocky Mountains. H. C.: LONG EXPEDITION

About this Item: Harrison Hall, Philadelphia, 1822. 8vo. (8 5/8 x 6 inches). [4], [449]-532pp. Engraved frontispiece plate after T. R. Peale, depicting a skin lodge Kaskaias. Foxing. Publisher's lettered wrappers. Ephemeral announcement of the publication of the account of the Long Expedition to the Rocky Mountains. Major Stephen Long was the principal proponent of government-sponsored exploration of the West following the War of 1812. He travelled farther than Pike or Lewis and Clark, and blazed trails that were susequently followed by Fremont, Powell, and others. The expedition travelled up the Missouri and then followed the River Platte to its source in the Rocky Mountains before moving south to Upper Arkansas. From there the plan was to find the source of the Red River, but when this was missed the Canadian River was explored instead. The expedition added significantly to the earlier discoveries of Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike. Edwin James was the botanist, geologist, and surgeon for this important government expedition, initially named the Yellowstone Expedition. In addition to his duties on the expedition, James subsequently served as the editor and compiler of the official account of the expedition, relying "upon his own records, the brief geological notes of Major Long, and the early journals of Thomas Say [who served as the expedition's naturalist]" (Wagner-Camp). The present December 1822 issue of The Port Folio (Vol. II, No. 6) includes a full-page announcement on the rear wrapper advertising the publication of the first edition of James account of the Long Expedition. In addition, pages 496 to 503 include a lengthy review of the work, and the engraved frontispiece depicts a skin lodge of the Kaskaias, after expedition artist T. R. Peale, printed from the same plate as the engraving within the first edition atlas to the James account. Rare and ephemeral. Seller Inventory # 32323
