Uneven cut paper has been rebound using marbled paper boards, gold on black title, Parchment end papers with buffered and restored text block. Very handsome presentation. There is foxing to the original pages. There is no publication date as this original imprint has been rebound as described. The final paragraph is "N.B. The substance of the forgoing account was taken from her own mouth by Samuel Bowuas. And in the ninth month, called September, 1741, Samuel Hopwood was with her, and received the relation much to the same purpose; at which time he saw the child (then grown a young women) who was sucking at her brest when she was carried into captivity." There are other accounts up to 26 pages, but this appears to be the 16 page account published by Davies and Company in 1810.

A Topographical Description of the Western Territory of North America, IMLAY,G(ilbert) and Filson, John
39 IMLAY,G(ilbert) and Filson, John A Topographical Description of the Western Territory of North America
New York see notes for publisher info 1793 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Vol. 1 (of 2) only. Rebound in full tan calf leather binding. Foxing to pages but text clear and readable. Pages 216-225 at first glance appear to be missing, however it looks more like a type setting error since page 226 is actually printed on the back of 215, thus page 226 is actually page 216. This is further substantiated by the continuation of the Indian tribe Alibamon at the bottom of 215 to the top of 226 (actually 216). It is the opinion of the seller that all the pages to this volume are included and that there is no gap between 216-225 and that it is a typesetting error. The fold out map in front of book before title page has a piece torn out toward bottom which is about 20% of the map. There are two maps. The first is the map of theTerritory over to the Spanish on the western side of the Mississippi River and Includes Virginia, N.C., Maryland, and the top part of Georgia (this is where the bottom part of map is torn off) The second map is an engraving from Campbell's Edition of Imlay's Description of Kentucky and shows the route of a proposed canal running from north of Louisville to a point south which was to bypass the rapids of the Ohio. the map measures approx. 6.75" X8" unfolded. There is a Notes section (excellent historical significance) from p. 236-260 with a comment "The following Notes were interspersed through the work: but the Printer, for the convenience of the reader, thought proper to collect them together at the end of the volume with directions (page numbers) to whatever part of the work they refer". "Imlay was a Captain in the American Army during the late War. Former owner Henry S. Drinker's signature inside. Drinker is believed to be the same Henry Drinker who was and Attorney in Philidalphia and married Hanna Smith. He died July 3 1824 and owned a major portion of Susquehanna County Pa. No library markings, underlining, or marginal notations. Howes I-12; Sabin 34356. This is not a reprint or xlibrary. Rare.; Maps fold out; Signed by Notable Personage, Unrelated
