The Manuscript Journals of Alexander Henry and of David Thompson, 1799-1814.

Publisher: New York: Francis P. Harper, 1897..
First Edition Three octavo volumes bound in two. 1027 pages. Frontis portrait. Limited Edition, #434 of 1100 copies. A rebound copy of an important book about the Northwest fur trade and the Indians from Minnesota to Oregon. The reasonably attractive rebinding of this copy is half red faux leather in red cloth. The second book of this set includes the index for both volumes bound in the front of volume II. The index apparently had been volume III. A significant history of the fur trade in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. A major flaw: it lacks the maps. A bookseller description on front pastedown vol. I. but clearly not for this copy, The title page of vol. I shows what must have been an attempt to remove the library stamp removed so that the editor's name had to be restored. The page is also cut horizontally from edge to hinge. Vol. II has a note regarding the binding of the index with volume II; the stubs of the map mounts remain at the end of the index. The text of both volumes is lightly edge toned. The spines carry the date 1799 which is the date of the beginning of the journal, and what is probably the name of the owner at the time of rebinding. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good-

Cuthbertson, Stuart & J. C. Ewers.  
A Preliminary Bibliography of the American Fur Trade.
 Picture
Publisher: Washington, D.C., U.S. Dept. of the Interior, 1939; reprint Martino 2002.
ii, 191 p., 24 cm. The North American fur trade flourished for nearly 250 years after the first Europeans landed. The French predominated from 1600 to 1760; the British fur trade flourished 1760-1816, and Americans presided, from 1816 to 1850, over its slow collapse from the absence of Indian participation and changes in European fashion. This bibliography, originally published in governmental mimeograph-sheet form, includes 2000 items. Stock# 36,660x. Fine binder's cloth; new from the publisher. Besterman 2394.

Old Bill Williams Mountain Man
 Picture
Publisher: University of Oklahoma Press Norman 1962.
First printing of the Revised Edition Fine in green cloth covered boards with gilt text on the spine. A small quarto measuring 9" by 6". In a near fine, unclipped dust jacket with light rubbing and wear to the ends of the spine area and to the fore corners of the front panel at the fold to the front flap. With an introduction by William Brandon. 234 pages including an index, bibliography, chapter notes, text and illustrated with 19 illustrations and double page map of the south-western US noting the events of Old Bill Williams life, one of the more important Mountain men of the early 1800's. Born in North Carolina in 1787 Bill Williams started out as a Baptist preacher at the age of 17. He left that calling very shortly and took up living with the Osage Indians. He then joined the first Santa Fe Trail survey party to help negotiate treaties with the Indian tribes who held the land through which the trail had to pass. He then spent seven years in the American South-west trapping, hunting and became a recognized expert at "dealing with the Indians". He ranged over what is now Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon. His name has been immortalized by the naming of both a river and a mountain in Arizona after him.

Ferris, W.A. (edited by Paul C. Phillips).  
Life in the Rocky Mountains: A Diary of Wanderings on the Sources of the Rivers Missouri, Columbia and Colorado from February, 1830 to November, 1835.

Publisher: Denver: Fred A. Rosenstock/Old West Publishing, 1940..
First edition thus Hardback octavo in red cloth. 353 pages plus 95 pages of preliminary material including a biography of Ferris, a couple of pages of poetry, and a history of "Rocky Mountain Exploration and Trade", illustrated with maps and drawings including a folding map laid in. Ferris was employed by the American Fur Company, and he relates the battle for supremacy in the Rockies among American Fur, Rocky Mountain Fur and Hudson Bay Co. His map of the area is the first based on actual exploration of the area, and the book contains the "first full length description of the Yellowstone region." Howes, F100. A nice copy in dustjacket. The top edge has a rainbow spray which perhaps indicates a remainder. The jacket spine is missing about an inch at the bottom, and the front pastedown has the evidence of the removal of a bookplate or a library pocket. Accordingly there is a chance that this is ex-library although these are the only such indications. Previous owner name in ink on front free endpaper. The binding is sound although the front hinge has been professionally, and seamlessly, strengthened. The covers, and the textblock foredge are lightly soiled. The extremities are very lightly worn. The jacket has a couple of small chips on or near the head of spine, and the spine is lightly faded. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good in Very Good DJ

Irving, Washington  
Astoria, or Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains
 Picture
Publisher: Carey, Lea, & Blanchard Philadelphia 1836.
First Edition, First State Both volumes of this two volume set are in good to very good- condition although re-backed retaining the publisher's original green-brown, patterned cloth covered boards and the gilt text stamped back strips. The original end papers were also retained. The new spine backing is in a dark green cloth which does not match the original materials but does supply each volume with added strength. (The original cloth is embossed with a floral pattern on "brown T-like cloth" as noted as "Cloth C" by Jacob Blanck in his Bibliography of American Literature.) (BAL 10148) The original cloth at the lower fore edges of the boards is rubbed through in small areas as are the upper fore edges of the boards. As is typically seen, the end papers for both volumes are foxed and there is general foxing to many of the pages throughout the text blocks. Both books are protected within two fabric covered chemises which are contained within an elegant 1/2 dark green leather and cloth covered slip case with gilt lettering on the boxed end. The boxed end is shaped as a double convex with raised spines so that it appears as two volumes with gilt text stamping in the compartments. The fold-out map of the routes of Hunt & Sturart contained in volume two is in very good condition with very slight age toning and with two short closed tears: one 1 1/2" long at the first fold and the second of 1/2" long at the edge where it is tipped-in. with only one short 1" closed tear at one of the folds and a 2" long closed tear near the edge which is tipped-into the binding. Wright Howes in his bibliography U.S.Iana (I-81) states that this is the "Classic account of the first American attempt at settlement on the Pacific coast, 1811, ..including the earliest extended relation of Wilson P.
