FIRST EDITION of the rare complete account of Powell's descent down the Colorado, of which perhaps as few as 100 copies were printed.

"One of the basic documents of Colorado River history. This book differs in so many respects from the report of 1875...that it is here given the status of a separate title. Not only has the narrative been revised and augmented, but there are several new chapters and a great many new illustrations...  Altogether, it is a handsome book; also a scarce one" (Farquhar).
