    265,[1]pp. plus plates. Pictorial cloth. Very good. A reprint, after the original edition of 1911, of a scarce privately printed latter- day overland describing a five-month journey in a Conestoga wagon from Los Angeles to Wisconsin in 1910. The author, a Chicago banker, was one of the first 20th century recreators of the Old West, and this narrative is interesting for the trip itself and as an evocation of the pioneer experience.

Original dark red cloth, spine gilt, front board gilt-ruled with gilt-stamped publisher's logo center, t.e.g., publisher's card laid in. Spine slightly faded, interior entirely clean and unmarked. A near fine copy. Lakeside Press reprint of the original, which was published anonymously in 1848. This edition is the first to be printed with the author's name and is the first American edition; it also includes an introduction by historian Milo Quaife. This is number thirty- four in the Lakeside Classics series. Burlend's tale primarily describes her family's trials in the early years of settlement in Pike County, Illinois. Burlend was a fairly poor woman from rural Yorkshire, England, who came to America in hopes of improving her lot in life. Her tale was written primarily for an English audience who were considering emigration themselves, and was initially published in London. HOWES B992. GRAFF 490 (ref).

Spine slightly faded. Slight foxing to front and rear endpapers and pastedown. Otherwise clean and unmarked with little wear. Very good. Lakeside Press reprint of Shaw's 1896 original, with introduction from historian and editor Milo Quaife. Quaife's introduction here is apparently reprinted in the 1976 edition on which Mattes bases his entry. This is number forty-six in the Lakeside Classics series. Shaw, originally from Boston, was a member of the Mt. Washington Mining Company, who traveled from Boston by boat to Independence then overland to Fort Kearny and eventually to Sacramento. While Shaw is fond of providing specific dates and vivid descriptions of landscapes, the clear discrepancies between his account and accounts from his traveling companions reveal his memory to be spotty at best.

Original dark red cloth, spine gilt, front board gilt-ruled with gilt- stamped publisher's logo, t.e.g. Spine slightly cocked and lightly rubbed, spine ends lightly worn. Previous owner's signature on front pastedown. Interior clean with very little toning. Very good. Lakeside Press reprint of Larpenteur's classic account of the Missouri fur trade, with introduction by noted historian and editor Milo Quaife. This is number thirty- one in the Lakeside Classics series. In his historical introduction to this volume, Quaife writes that "Although Dr. Coues [the editor of the original 1898 edition] was a man of wide learning and high scholarly repute, some of his editorial practices were not in harmony with the principles of historical scholarship." Namely, he claims Coues "pretty much revamped the language and literary construction" of the author, which has the upside of producing the "graceful, smooth-flowing narrative which is before us in the present volume."

Original dark red cloth, spine gilt, front board gilt-ruled with gilt-stamped publisher's logo center, t.e.g., publisher's card laid in. Spine slightly faded. Missing final blanks. Near fine. This Lakeside Press edition collects and reprints two 19th century settler narratives printed in Iowa, along with footnotes and introduction by editor and historian Milo Quaife. This is number forty-two in the Lakeside Classics series. Spencer was a Vermont native who moved to Illinois in 1820, where he eventually became a judge. His narrative deals primarily with the Black Hawk War, but also sheds much light on the early settlers of Illinois. "Interesting reminiscences of life in sparsely settled Illinois and along the Mississippi in the Twenties and until the end of the Black Hawk War in 1832" - Streeter. "Especially important for his view of the Black Hawk War - he being sympathetic toward Black Hawk" - Graff. Burrows' narrative is more personal in nature; he relates life as one of the earliest settlers and foremost businessmen of Davenport, Iowa in significant detail. It is particularly noteworthy for its descriptions of how business was conducted at that time and place. "One of the best books of pioneer reminiscences" - Mott. HOWES S834, "a."
