Travels in North America Bound with Travels in South America Two volumes in one
London: Printed for C.J.G and F. Rivington for the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge., 1831 Volume one: 168 pages. With four illustrations (as given in the book. Howes [P305] calls for 5 plates but this seems to contradict the book’s statement). Volume two: 168 pages with four illustrations. These travels by Philips are imaginary (as is Philips) but contain previously published accounts tied together with the narrative device of the imaginary traveler. Travels in North America contains most of Lewis and Clark’s account of their trip through the American West, told in somewhat different form. The Mississippi River, New Orleans, St. Louis, the Ohio River, slavery, Native Americans and other topics are covered, giving again truthful facts about America in the guise of an imaginary narrator. Travels in South America is written in the same manner, and the preface to it states as much. In half leather with marbled boards. In GOOD+ condition. Moderate to heavy scuffing to the marbled boards. Extremities scuffed and worn with the corners bumped and rounded, the spine pulled with minor loss of leather to the head. Small chip of leather missing from the center backstrip. Leather scuffed along the hinges. The inner text is clean and tight with very minor foxing to the preliminaries. Nice copy of this rather hard to find work, a later edition in GOOD+ condition. Three copies of this edition found in OCLC (Travels in North America. None found for Travels in South America). Photos available upon request. . Half-Leather. Good/No Jacket.
