Descripción:

Original brown patterned cloth. Large octavo. 693pp. With 22 lithographed plates and all 5 maps including the large folding Preuss map at the end. First edition, Senate issue. Fremont's most important work, chronicling his seminal expeditions that revealed the paths and trails that were to be the highways by which the gold seekers would rush to California beginning in 1849. The first portion of the work reprints Fremont's report of 1843, covering his 1842 expedition to the Rocky Mountains. The second portion records his expedition of 1843-1844, delineating the major sections of the route subsequently followed by thousands of Oregon immigrants. This Senate issue contains scientific data not present in the smaller House issue. The Preuss map at the end "changed the entire picture of the West and made a lasting contribution to cartography" according to Wheat. This copy is in need of rebinding. Both covers are loose as is the spine which lacks a large piece at the top. The text and plates have some heavy tanning and foxing and there is a stain in the upper left corner of most of the pages. The Preuss map is complete but is detached at some of the folds and in need of strengthening or restoration. No repairs have been attempted on it and it has no ugly tape marks like some examples.
