IMLAY, Gilbert (c.1754-1828): A Topographical Description of the Western Territory of North America: containing a succinct account of its soil, climate, natural history, population, agriculture, manners, and customs...The third edition, with great additions,
London: 1797. xii,598,pp. 3 folding engraved maps, 1 folding engraved plan. (Several rectangular yellowish offsetting marks, probably from on old bookmark, very minor spotting). Original boards, uncut, green half- morocco and cloth slipcase. The most desirable edition, a superb copy in original state. "The most complete version of this work, in which form it was the most informative compilation on the West at the end of the 18th century" (Streeter). "...The most complete information on the trans- Allegany frontier..." (Howes). The third edition of Imlay's work adds so much material to the earlier editions as to make it a completely different work, embellished with important maps. Here he gives the complete texts of Filson's famous work on Kentucky, and Hutchins on Florida, Louisiana and Virginia, as well as an account of Indians, Indian corn, ancient earthworks, the soil in the Genesee country, Patrick Kennedy's journal up the Illinois River, a reprint of A Short Description of the State of Tennassee [sic] which first appeared in Philadelphia the previous year, the act creating Knoxville, the 1796 treaty with Spain, and the plan of association of the North American Land Company. All of this is illuminated by "A Map of the Western Territories of the United States," "A Map of the State of Kentucky from Actual Survey by Elihu Barker of Philadelphia" and "A Map of the Tennassee [sic] Government...." The folding plan shows the falls of the Ohio. One of the most important pieces of Americana of the late 18th century.
