    Complete with map, this German volume addresses one of the great expeditions of the American West, the expedition of Zebulon Pike and men. The folding map is a fine engraving, in English, covering from the Mississippi River in the east, following its many tributaries as they reach into the western plains. Details the Kansas and Republican rivers, as well as the "Arkansaw" as it reaches up the great mountain that would later bear Pike's name. Just catches the headwaters of the Platte river as it swings behind Pikes peak and notes. Shows the missions of New Mexico, as well as the portions of Mexico which Pike experienced, once captured by the Spanish army. A crisp, detailed reference for Pike's expedition.

    Condition is very good for book and map, with some scuffing to the boards and spine with some sunning. Image size is approximately 10 x 13.75 (inches)
