The Literature Of The Lewis And Clark Expedition, A Bibliography And Essays

Stephen Dow Beckham [Essays By]

First edition. 4to. Cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, 315 pp., foreword, acknowledgments, plates and photographs, usage note, introduction, sources cited, index. Bibliography by Doug Erickson, Jeremy Skinner, and Paul Merchant. The first comprehensive bibliography of Lewis & Clark Expedition publications in a century is based on the world-class collection of expedition materials at the Aubrey R. Watzek Library of Lewis & Clark College. The volume is divided into seven sections: the expedition's traveling library of scientific, technical, and cartographic materials [1754-1804]; related congressional documents and early notices [1803-1807]; editions of Patrick Gass's journal [1807-1904]; surreptitious accounts [1809-1846]; the Biddle-Allen narrative of the expedition [1814-2001]; nineteenth-century publications [1803-1905]; and twentieth-century publications [1906-2001]. In each section, introductory historical essays survey the large cast of characters who have contributed to the expedition story. The bibliographies for each section list all known publications related to the expedition. Lavishly illustrated, the book is a "must" for any scholar, collector, or general reader of the Lewis & Clark expedition. Fine in dust jacket.
