Journal of a Tour into the Interior of Missouri and Arkansaw...toward the Rocky Mountains; performed in the years 1818 and 1819.

London: Sir Richard Phillips and Co., 1821. 102pp, large folding map. Bound in half leather with marbled boards, minimal internal browning, external joint starting, else very good. Schoolcraft (1793-1864) was a geologist, ethnographer, and Indian administrator. He is perhaps best known for his massive study of American Indians, but he also participated in several early expeditions into what was then the far west. This journal recounts his exploration from the lead mining region of southeastern Missouri south to the Arkansas District and returning, a journey of some nine hundred miles. The folding map, Countries Bordering on the Mississippi and Missouri (12 by 15 inches) shows the center of the continent from Lake Erie in the northeast to San Antonio, Texas in the southwest with much of interest.
