Illustrated with tissue-protected engraved portrait frontispiece. Gurdon Saltonstall Hubbard (1802 in Windsor, Vermont 1886 in Chicago, Illinois) was an American fur trader, insurance underwriter and land speculator. Hubbard first arrived in Chicago on October 1, 1818. He went on to build Chicago's first stockyard and help foment a land boom for Chicago in the East. On several trips throughout Illinois, he became the adopted son of Chief Waba of the Kickapoo and married Watseka, niece of Chief Tamin of the Kankakee Potawatomi. After he walked for 75 miles in a single night to warn the town of Danville of an impending raid by Indians, he earned the nickname "Pa-pa-ma-ta-be, " or "Swift-Walker." When a local Indian tribe questioned his ability to perform this feat, he challenged their champion walker to a race. Hubbard's challenger lost by several miles and was unable to move the next day. Hubbard seemed to be unaffected. Former owner's signature on ffep, otherwise unmarked. Gilt bright, a few pages very lightly soiled, corners sharp, tight and square. NEAR FINE.
