This is one of only 1,450 copies produced with many pages un-cut. James Clyman was one of the original co-founders of the Oregon Trail. He was a companion of Jedediah Smith, Tom Fitzpatrick and Jim Bridger. He made his first venture into the Rocky Mountains in 1824 and later was the first to travel the full length of the Platt River. In 1844 he became an emigrant joining a wagon train to Oregon. He settled in the Napa Valley, California ruturning to "the States" in 1846 to encourage more settlers to come to Napa. Very uncommon and a beautiful volume which has not been read as much of the text block remains uncut. (Mattes, 7, 102, & 169 all with five stars recognizing the historical and literary value of Clyman's journals.), (Howes, C-81 says of Clyman that he provides "one of the most trustworthy narratives of the far west, for the period 1842-6....")

    Carver, Jonathan:  Three Years Travels Through The Interior Parts of North America.  Boston: David West, 1794. Third American Edition. Recently rebound in full black leather with five raised bands on the spine and with a gilt stamped, red leather spine label. A 16mo measuring 6 11/16 by 3 3/4 inches with repaired title page and general tanning of the pages. 282 of text. Printed in Portsmouth, New Hampshire by Charles Peirce for David West the publisher. This title was first issued in London in 1778. It was not published in the United States until 1784 in Philadelphia with a second edition published in that city in 1789 which edition was reprinted in 1792. We therefore infer this to be a third American edition. (Lee's A Bibliography of Carver's Travels) According to Howes: "Carver penetrated farther into the West than any other English explorer before the Revolution." Although an American (by birth) Carver was not able to get the manuscript of his trip (1766-1768) published in this country. He went to London where it was published. (DAB) The popularity of his book lead to many translations, editions and printings in several countries. (Howes, C-215; Evans, 26745; Sabin, 11185; Lee, p165 to 169; DAB, v II, p552)
