Fremont, John C.: REPORT OF THE EXPLORING EXPEDITION TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS IN THE YEAR 1842, AND TO OREGON AND NORTH CALIFORNIA IN THE YEARS 1843-44. Washington. Blair & Rives 1845. 583pp. plus twenty-two plates and four maps (two folding). Original boards. Spine sunned. Scattered light foxing throughout, else wise G-VG. Tight original binding. Lacking the large folding map. The less common House issue of the Fremont report, preceding the Senate issue, according to Wagner-Camp, and with the lithographed plates executed in a slightly different form. This document is one of the most important single pieces of Western Americana. In various editions, this report was more widely read than any other account of the West published before the gold rush, and the text and map had a great effect on the routes traveled in the great period of migration.
