    This first English printing of the report of Lewis and Clarke’s expedition includes the all-important six engraved maps on four plates, complete with the large folding map, in excellent condition. Many credit this folding map with launching the modern era of map collecting and this first English edition is generally considered to be superior to the first American edition, published earlier in 1814 in Philadelphia.

    "We are pleased to have this book," stated David Hall, Business Manager and Owner of National Book Auctions. "Like the exploration reported within its pages, this book is an important discovery."

    The volume is the “definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent" (Wagner-Camp), led by Lewis and Clark across the unexplored Louisiana Territory, spanning the entire mid-section of North America from present-day Texas and Louisiana up to Montana and North Dakota. Derived from journal entries of the members of the expedition, including both Lewis and Clark, this work details the journey, with descriptions of various Native American tribes, the expedition to what is now Yellowstone National Park, exploration of present-day Texas and more.
