Provenance

T. P. Williams (sporting bookplate)

Literature

Streeter VII: 4099

Catalogue Note

Privately printed and of equal rarity with the similar second expedition, “The Southwest Revisited.”  (See following lot.)

"Full of hunting adventures, but likewise historically important for the excellent observations on life in the back-country at this period. Curiously enough the remnants of the Modocs were encountered and there is an account of Shacknasty Jim, Scarface Charlie, and Captain Jack’s still-moaning mourners." (Eberstadt) Rare. Apparently no copies at auction since Streeter in 1969, when it realized $350.
