Boston: George Clark, ., 1822 8vo 256pp. plus illustration. Folding copper engraved hand colored frontispiece One of the later editions of this variant of Trumbull's infamous work, after the first of 1812. A history of the United States viewed through the lens of conflict with the Indians. Besides the figures named in the title, the narrative has sections on Daniel Boone and George Washington. Contains much information on Indian customs, reproductions of primary documents (i.e. letters between generals), and exact lists of casualties. Howes mercilessly lampoons this book as "a well-nigh worthless production of a seventeen- year old lad which enjoyed wide favor by an uncritical public." "Written for a comparatively unlettered public" - Field. The book is notable, however, for its wonderful woodcut folding frontispiece depicting the defeat of Tecumseh in 1812, and this copy in the original full calf deep maroon calf label is a lovely artifact. HOWES T370. FIELD 1570 (another ed). SABIN 97196 Size: 8vo. N° de ref. de la librería 005252
