Report of Winfield S. Schley, Commander, U.S.Navy Commanding Greely Relief Expedition of 1884.
Schley, Winfield S.
Washington, DC: GPO, 1887. 75pp, illus, map on three sheets. Contemporary half leather, some external rubbing, internally clean and very good. In the summer of 1881 a scientific team led by Adolphus Washington Greely was dropped on the northeast coast of Elesmere Island to study natural phenomena in the Arctic. The party had supplies for 27 months, but planned relief ships were blocked by ice until the summer of 1884 when Schley rescued Greely and six survivors (one of whom died on the trip home). This is Schley's report, a fascinating look at the logistics that went into mounting such an expedition. Of interest are 32 full page engravings from photographs, many scenes of the barren Arctic.

The Wonders of the Colorado Desert (Southern California) Its Rivers and its Mountains, its Canyons and its Springs, its LIfe an
James, George Wharton
Boston: Little, Brown, and Compant, 1906. First edition. Two volumes. xliv, 270pp, illus, folding map; xiv, 271-547pp, illus. Some external wear and soil, spines faded, hinges starting, overall a very good set. The extended title continues, "Including an Account of a Recent Journey made down the Overflow of the Colorado River to the Mysterious Salton Sea." James (1858-1923) was an indefatigable self-promoter, observer, and writer, having penned some 40 books and innumerable articles and pamphlets many on the American Southwest. His writing leans toward romanticism, and enthusiasm for natural environments, idealization of aboriginal lifeways, and health faddism. The "mysterious" Salton Sea of the title was caused by the Colorado River breaching an Imperial Valley dike in 1905 after a year of heavy rainfall and snowmelt. It took two years to restore the rivers' previous channel and was thus still filling when James visited. Farquhar says of the account, "The best starting point for any study of he Colorado Desert, which paradoxically is closely associated with the River. The illustrations, both those from sketches and those from photographs, are of considerable historical importance, as are the chapters relating to the Salton Sea."

A Biographical Cyclopedia of Interesting Personalities.
(Texas)
Dallas: The Who's Who Publishing Company, N/D. ca. 1936) 236pp, illus. Quarto. Elaborately figured boards, some wear to extremities, else very good. The half title is Who's Who in Texas. I suspect a vanity publication, that is, you pays yer money and an obituary writer waxes effusive about your prosperous, upstanding Christian character. The large majority of the more than one hundred biographies are of doctors, lawyers, and businessmen. I noticed a very few cattlemen and even fewer women. Many are in fact obituaries, since several articles are posthumous, no doubt sponsored by grieving families. An interesting look into the lives of upper middle class Texans between the world wars.

A Century of Freemasonry in New Mexico.
(Freemasons)
Santa Fe: N/P; 1951. 94pp, illus. Blue decorated plush hardcovers. Near fine. Depending on your level of paranoia, Freemasons are either 1) a convivial group of like-minded men devoted to socializing and public service, or 2) a sinister cabal dedicated to world domination. This volume is a celebration of #1 and the first 100 years of the group's history in New Mexico. There is a list of leaders going back to Charles Bent and Kit Carson, who rates a full page biography, and descriptions of the various lodges throughout the territory and late in the state. Many photos of members - unlikely for a sinister cabal - and various meeting places from a dugout in Fort Sumner to the massive pink temple in Santa Fe. Undoubtedly a scarce publication done for members.

A Concise History of the Mormon Battalion in the Mexican War.
Tyler, Sergeant Daniel
N/P: N/P, 1881. First edition. 346pp. Original boards. Extremities rubbed, front free end paper missing, some internal soiling, and dampstain to a few pages, withal very good. "History may be searched in vain for an equal march of infantry." In these few words, Lieutenant Colonel Philip St. George Cooke summarized the achievements of the Mormon Battalion, a volunteer force of some 500 men who had walked more than two thousand miles from Council Bluffs to San Diego during the winter of 1846-7 to participate in the Mexican War. The Battalion was a part of Stephen Watts Kearny's Army of the West that left Council Bluffs bound for California. At Santa Fe command of the Battalion was transferred to Cooke who led the poorly equipped volunteers south along the Rio Grande del Norte, then west across the Sonora desert to Tucson. They were on the road to Los Angeles when they received change of orders and ultimately marched into San Diego on January 31, 1847. Daniel Tyler, third sergeant of Company C, had full access to the journals and archives of the LDS Church when he wrote his history of that adventure. It has become (along with Cooke's own account of the conquest of California and New Mexico) the standard source for the Mormon Battalion. Hafferkorn P53, Howes T447, Tutorow 3345.

From Edmonton, Howse explored the Columbia River continental divide (1809-11). His twenty years among the Cree in Prince Rupert's Land gave him a good command of the indigenous language. This important study was originally published in 1844. Siebert calls it "one of the most comprehensive of Cree grammars." Siebert Sale (citing the first edition) 73.

A History: Greeley and the Union Colony of Colorado.
Boyd, David
Greeley, CO: The Greeley Tribune Press, 1890. 448pp, illus, errata slip. Original boards. Light scraping to boards, owner's bookplate, else near fine. Laid in is a clipped signature of David Boyd and a letter of transmittal from his son, a gravure image of Boyd, and a couple of more or less relevant newspaper clippings. The Union Colony of Colorado (also called the Greeley Colony and The Union Temperance Colony) was a joint stock company formed to promote agricultural settlement in the South Platte River valley in the Colorado Territory. Organized in October 1869 by Nathan Meeker in order to establish a religiously-oriented utopian community of "high moral standards," the colony was founded the following year at present-day Greeley, Colorado, which was established by the colony in March 1870. It was financed and promoted by New York Tribune editor Horace Greeley, a prominent advocate of settlement of the American West. The colony greatly advanced homesteading and irrigation usage in northern Colorado, demonstrating the viability of cultivation at a time when agriculture was emerging as a rival of mining as the basis for the territorial economy. The company eventually dissolved (although Greeley remained dry until 1972) and the town became a routinely prosperous agricultural town. This is a detailed history of the experiment by one of the participants. Herd 296, Henkle 1220.

Washington: Government Printing Office, 1875. lix, 567pp, plates and illus, folding map in facsimile. Recased with new end papers.

Particularly interesting for the site plans of many of the facilities described. A vas amount of information on frontier posts. Howes presents this as the second edition of an 1870 publication by the Surgeon-General's Office of the War Department, but the present volume contains much of the information in the earlier document, but adds information of 95 additional posts and the report on hygiene, making it substantially more than a simple later edition.

Schwatka, Frederick
St.Louis: J.W. Henry, 1892. 418pp, illus. Pictorial boards. Extremities rubbed, spine darkened, pages evenly tanned, overall a very good copy. Frederick Schwatka (1849-1882) was an army officer, explorer and author. He had a remarkable career, graduating from West Point and studying both law and medicine while intermittently serving as a fighting officer at numerous postings in the west. He found his true calling in Arctic exploration when in 1878 he commanded a privately funded search for survivors of the lost Franklin expedition. In 1883 the Army sent Schwatka on a reconnaissance of the Yukon River. Traveling with a small party, he built a raft and descended the more than 1,300 miles of the river from head to mouth, thus making the longest raft journey recorded to that time. Shortly after his return he resigned from the Army but continued traveling in the far north, supporting himself by lecturing and writing books. This is an account of the 1883 expedition, expanded from the official report.

There is no mention of the boundary from the Rockies to the Pacific, a contentious issue that would not be settled until 1846.
