Emory, Lieut.-Col. W. H.; Cooke, P. St. George; Lieut. J. W. Abert
Washington, D.C.: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1848. First Edition
Original Cloth 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Good. Not Issued 
House Exec. Doc. No. 41, 30th Congress, 1st Session. Howes E 145 (1st edition). Original brown cloth, lettered in gilt. Lacks front flyleaf, title page, and perhaps a few front blanks, opens directly onto Secretary of War W. L. Marcy's letter dated 9 Feb. 1848 (p. 3), thus 3-614 pp., collated and (notably!) complete except as noted with (64) lithographic plates including (26) in Emory's report, (14) botanical illustrations accompanying Engelmann's report, and (24) in Abert's report, plus (3) battle plan maps also in Emory between pp. 108-120, however lacking the (2) large folding maps which were not issued with all copies (see Howes E 145 note), and thus possibly still complete as issued. House edition, released after Sentate edition (which, issued subsequently, was only 416 pp.), with possibly the first known rendering of Santa Fe on the plate opposite p. 419. Considerable wear, but mostly intact. Cloth is somewhat soiled and spotted, with exposure at corners, chipped at tail of spine with some separation along joints and approx. 1" of minor loss along lower front joint, small vintage paper label mounted on upper spine (though not otherwise marked as an institutional copy). Signed on front pastedown and along top edge of p. 3 by former owner H. W. Clapham, a page in the U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, D.C., 1848-49. Front hinge shows some evidence of amateur repair, but the binding is still intact, all leaves and plates present and firmly anchored excepting pp. 71-74 (which, along with 3 adjacent plates, are partially detached but fully intact). Text block edges somewhat dulled by age, interior with light scattered foxing, engraved plates mostly clean also with light foxing. Scarce edition. CONTENTS: 1) Notes of a Military Reconnoissance from Fort Leavenworth, in Missouri, to San Diego, in California, Including Part of the Arkansas, Del Norte, and Gila Rivers / 2) Report of Lieut. J. W. Abert, of his Examination of New Mexico, in the Years 1846-47 / 3) Report of Lieut. Col. P. St. George Cooke of his March from Santa Fe, New Mexico, to San Diego, Upper California / 4) Journal of Captain A. R. Johnston, First Dragoons. 023906

173 Pelts and Palisades: The Story of Fur and the Rivalry for Pelts in Early America [INSCRIBED] 
Hale, Nathaniel C.
Richmond, VA: The Dietz Press, 1959. First Edition
Cloth 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Fine. VG+ Signed by Author
Rust cloth, lettered in gilt. Mere hints of rubbing at extremities, essentially as issued. Dust jacket shows approx. 1" closed tear with associated creasing at top front joint and approx. 1/2" chip along top front edge, otherwise only mild shelf wear, now in archival mylar. xi,219 pp., illus. Inscribed on front flyleaf: "For our good Wynnewood neighbors, Elvera and Walter Buckley, with all best wishes, Claiborne Hale." We assume this to be the author's inscription, given that his full name was Nathanial Claiborne Hale (1903-1983) and that he wrote, among other things, a biography of William Claiborne, though it seems curious that he should be using his middle name in signing copies of a book published under his first name. 020544
