Two Years' Residence in the Settlement on the English Prairie, in the Illinois Country, United States …
London, 1822. 310 pp. plus three maps (two folding). 8vo. Later half sheep and marbled boards. Boards and spine rubbed, extremities rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. In a blue half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. 310 pp. plus three maps (two folding). 8vo. This important work was written by a prosperous British farmer who travelled with his family from the Isle of Wight in 1819. After landing in Baltimore and trekking across the South, he settled in one of the British colonies in southeastern Illinois, of which he gives an excellent account.  Included herein are extracts from his journal of the trip to his new home. Copies with all maps, as in the present copy, are uncommon. The maps show the settlement of English Prairie, the Illinois country, and the range of townships in southeastern Illinois.
