JOURNAL OF THE VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OF A CORPS OF DISCOVERY, UNDER THE COMMAND OF CAPT. LEWIS AND CAPT. CLARKE [sic]...FROM THE MOUTH OF THE RIVER MISSOURI THROUGH THE INTERIOR PARTS OF NORTH AMERICA TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN, DURING THE YEARS 1804, 1805, AND 1806
Philadelphia, 1812. 12mo. Contemporary tree calf, gilt label. Edges of covers worn, hinges tender. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on front free endpapers, verso of map, and titlepage. Age- toning and dampstains, offsetting from plates. A good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. Styled the "fourth edition" on the titlepage, after the first edition of 1807 (but with the plates not found therein), which Howes states was the "earliest full first- hand narrative of the Lewis and Clark expedition, preceding the official account [by] seven years." "This 1812 edition seems identical in text with my 1807 and 1810 edition, but it has, added, a folding map and two preliminary pages headed 'Review of this Work.' The plates are the same, and the pagination is kept the same by eliminating the half title after the preface" - Streeter.
