VOYAGE A LA LOUISIANE, ET SUR LE CONTINENT DE L'AMÉRIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE, FAIT DANS LES ANNÉES 1794 A 1798; CONTENANT UN TABLEAU HISTORIQUE DE LA LOUISIANE
Paris, 1802. Half title. Contemporary three-quarter calf and boards, black gilt morocco label. Front hinge slightly cracked, spine with minute worming. Internally bright and clean. Near fine. One of the classic early views of Louisiana at the beginning of the 19th century. It has been suggested that this work was written when it was first thought that Louisiana would be returned to France, in an effort to demonstrate its importance as a colony. While less a work of personal observation than a collection of contemporary data and reports, the text includes some discussion of Texas, the resident Indian tribes and their languages, accounts of slavery and colonial administration, etc.
