About this Item: Robert Armstrong, Washington, 1853. Hardcover. Condition: Good. First Edition. Senate issue (32d Congress, 2d Session, Executive, No. 59). Complete as issued, with 198 pp + 79 lithographed plates (23 views, 6 mammals, 5 birds, 21 reptiles, 3 fish, 21 botanical plates) and large folding map. Original brown cloth, with chipping and tears to spine cloth. Spine cracked at pp 174/175; intermittent foxing, primarily affecting the title page, occasional text margins, and about 20 plates (mainly mammals, birds, reptiles and botanicals, as opposed to the views, which are generally clean). Map has a few splits at the intersections and one closed tear that has been repaired on the verso. This was the final expedition made by the U.S. Army Corps of Topographical Engineers in connection with the Mexican War. In addition to Sitgreaves, the expedition party included J.G. Parke, Richard H. Kern as draughtsman, S.W. Woodhouse as physician and naturalist and Antoine Leroux as guide. Its purpose was to determine whether the Zuni River actually emptied into the Colorado and to examine the territory en route. The party followed the Zuni from Zuni Pueblo in western New Mexico to the Little Colorado, then continued west, reaching the Colorado near the Mojave villages and then proceeding south to Camp Yuma and San Diego. Wheat (3: 22-24) notes that the map is very detailed and calls it "a monumental achievement.generally correct and exceedingly well done." Howes S-528, Wheat 763, Wagner Camp 230:1, Graff 3809, Field 1414. Seller Inventory # 18346

Taking sheep and mules with them, the entire party suffered under the Arizona sun, from lack of water, and Mojave and Yumas Indians.

Includes Reconnaissance of the Zu�i, Little Colorado, and Colorado Rivers Made in 1851 map as called for, but includes Lithographed map Boundary of the Creek Country (24" x 36") laid in not called for. (Senate Executive Document 59) (Howes: 528) First edition. Survey of the watershed of the Canadian River and Red Fork of the Arkansas River in Indian Territory, extending from Fort Smith to the border with Texas. The lands of the Cherokee, Creek, Seminole and Choctaw Indians are located. The map locates numerous forts, including Smith, Coffee, Gibson and Old Fort Holmes, and their connecting wagon roads. Talasee is shown at the site of Tulsa. This map was issued with the "Northern and Western Boundary Line of the Creek Country" report by Sitgreaves and Lt. J.C. Woodruff. The surveys were made in 1848 and 1850, but the report in which the map was issued wasn't published until 1858. After the conquest of New Mexico and California it was apparent that transportation and communications needed to be improved between these new territories and the rest of the United States east of the Mississippi. Geographical knowledge of most of this area, particularly northwestern New Mexico (now northern Arizona), was very limited and inaccurate. Some maps of the day showed a river system that might provide a possible navigable water corridor between New Mexico and the Gulf of California via the Zuni, Little Colorado, and Colorado Rivers. In September of 1851 Captain Lorenzo Sitgreaves, along with a small crew of topographers, naturalists, artists, and support personnel, and an escort of 30 infantrymen left the Zuni Pueblo in western New Mexico by pack train with instructions to explore and map the Zuni and Colorado Rivers and evaluate their navigability in light of a possible impending war with the Mormons in Utah. They traveled southwest along the Zuni River to its mouth and then headed northwest along the Little Colorado, intending to follow it to the Colorado. When they reached Grand Falls (northwest of present-day Winslow, Arizona) their guide, Antoine Leroux, advised them that it was unwise to follow the river any further because it flowed in a deep canyon for the rest of its course and emptied into the great canyon of the Colorado River. They left the river and struck off due west around the north side of the San Francisco Mountains, discovering the Wupatki Indian Ruins along the way, and looped southwestward around the south side of Bill Williams Mountain. The rest of their westward march followed near the future alignment of Route 66 to the Colorado River near the modern town of Bullhead City, Arizona. After a difficult march south along the Colorado River they reached Camp Yuma on November 30. Of course, Sitgreaves discovered that the Zuni and Little Colorado Rivers were not at all navigable and would be useless to transport troops and supplies. The Colorado River, however, was found to be navigable along the entire distance that he explored. Sitgreaves' official report, "Report of an Expedition Down the Zuni and Colorado Rivers in 1851," was published in 1853. Condition: Foxing, left margin trimmed as issued for folding, all other plates present as called for in Howes as well as Lithographed map Boundary of the. Seller Inventory # E0014

About this Item: Robert Armstrong, DC, 1853. Hard Cover. First Edition. Senate Ex. Doc. 59, 32d Congress, 2nd Session. 1st, bound in 3/4 leather by an unknown binder; name "N.H. Walley" stamped at bottom of spine. Good only; both boards are loose, and have been held in place with new cords by a binder (in other words, not completely restored). Marbled paper of covers is heavily rubbed. A triangular piece at the top of the spine is threatening to chip off. Inside things are better. This copy belonged to Ruthven Deane (1851-1934), famous ornithologist, scholar and bookplate collector; his bookplate is on the marbled front pastedown. (The endpapers are split at the hinges front and back.) He was an early President of the Illinois Audubon Society, which preceded the National Audubon Society. On the first of 2 blank pages is the signature "Ruthven Deane, 1.Mch.1849." Beneath this, in a different pen, he had begun to write "List of birds" but the ink was bleeding, so he wrote on a thick card, "List of birds by Dr. S.W. Woodhouse on page 58, Also autograph letter of the author. R. Deane." He pasted this card in, along with a newspaper notice of Woodhouse's death, dated 24 Oct. 1904. Samuel Washington Woodhouse (1821-1904; note that both men lived 83 years) lost the use of a finger to a rattlesnake bite on this expedition; apparently his companions advised him that the best treatment was to stay drunk all night. The AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Woodhouse is tipped in at p. 58, where his section on birds begins; he also wrote the section on Mammals, and the Medical Report. It was written to Mr. Deane in Philadelphia on May 28th, 1900, and concerns an upcoming trip to Boston on the way to Maine. There is scattered but minimal foxing in the text. The plates (with the usual 1st-state numbering problems) are very clean, with only a bit of toning around the edges. Plates 13-21 of Plants have some foreedge tears, and some upper corners creased. The large map is in about good plus condition; several tears at its hinge have been repaired, and there are a number of sm. holes where folds intersect. It is lightly toned but clean and free of foxing. Signed. Seller Inventory # 11183
