Item description

THIS RARE BOOK IS TITLED: REPORT OF AN EXPEDITION FROM FORT COLVILLE TO PUGET SOUND WASHINGTON TERRITORY BY WAY OF LAKE CHELAN AND SKAGIT RIVER DURING THE MONTHS OF AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 1882 - MADE BY FIRST LIEUT. HENRY H. PIERCE ADJUTANT, 21ST INFANTRY, UNDER THE ORDERS OF BRIG. GEN. NELSON A. MILES, COMMANDING THE DEPARTMENT OF THE COLUMBIA - WASHINGTON: GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE 1883. IT HAS A SOFT COVER WITH 25 PAGES OF TEXT GIVING DESCRIPTIONS OF WHAT THEY SAW OR ENCOUNTERED DURING THE EXPEDITION, A LIST OF CAMPS WITH DISTANCES AND A LARGE FOLD OUT MAP IN THE BACK. EVERYTHING IS THERE WITH NO PAGES MISSING. THERE IS AN OLD WATER STAIN TOWARDS THE VERY TOP IN THE BACK OF THE BOOK BUT IT HAS NOT AFFECTED IT ADVERSELY AND AN OLD AUCTION TAG THAT WAS AFFIXED TO THE FRONT COVER AT SOME PREVIOUS TIME. IT SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE REMOVED WITH THE RIGHT METHOD BUT I AM LEAVING IT ATTACHED TO LET THE WINNING BIDDER DECIDE ON THE BEST METHOD OF REMOVING IT. ALSO, THE NUMBER 104 WAS WRITTEN LONG AGO ON THE COVER WITH INK. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE PUBLICATION AND I SPENT A GREAT DEAL OF TIME OVER MANY YEARS TRYING TO FIND ANOTHER ONE LISTED ON THE INTERNET, AND THERE WERE NO OTHER EXAMPLES THAT I COULD FIND FOR SALE EXCEPT A REPRINT. THE BOOK WAS REFERRED TO ON THE INTERNET AND PORTIONS QUOTED BUT NO COPIES WERE AVAILABLE ANYWHERE SO THIS MAY BE A RARE POSSIBLY THE LAST CHANCE FOR SOMEONE TO OBTAIN AN ORIGINAL COPY SO HAVE A GOOD LOOK AND THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TO SEE IT.
