Description: Greenhow, Robert. THE HISTORY OF OREGON AND CALIFORNIA, AND THE OTHER TERRITORIES ON THE NORTH-WEST COAST OF NORTH AMERICA.... London. 1844. xviii, [2], 482, [8] pp. ads, errata slip, and folding map. Publisher's cloth with paper title label to spine. Label worn and with small chips, very discreetly rebacked with original spine laid on, text-block tight and square. Map with long closed tear discreetly repaired with tissue, some light fraying to margins, and some small stains. Small former owner's bookplate and booksellers label to front pastedown, else contents quite clean and bright with only an occasional spot of light foxing. Housed in slip-case. Very Good. **************************************** The first British publication of the greatly enlarged edition of Greenhow's earlier MEMOIR..., first issued as a government document in 1840. "Among contemporary writers on the Oregon Question, and on the events of Oregon history on which the question depended, Greenhow deserves first place" - Eberstadt. The map for this edition, entitled "Map of the Western & Middle Portions of North America, to illustrate the History of California, Oregon, and other Countries on the North-West Coast of America," is new to the enlarged edition. "The ablest and most important work of its time..." - Cowan. The collation and map are identical to the Boston 1844, or first enlarged, edition. EBERSTADT 114:340 (ref). TWENEY 89, 25 (ref). HILL 724. HOWES G389. WHEAT GOLD REGIONS 22. SABIN 28632. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 481. COWAN, p.249 (note).
