This edition of Lewis and Clark's Expedition diaries includes a multitude of illustrations, drawings, maps, and facsimiles in both color and sepia-tone throughout two volumes. The introduction was written by John Bakeless, who has written over a dozen books, including "Lewis and Clark, Partners in Discovery", which is one of the first and foremost scholarly works on Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. This edition also includes sixteen full-page plates in four, five, and six colors. Thirteen of the plates are from paintings by Carl Bodmer and three paintings by George Bird King. They are bound in decorated parchment-toned buckram with a map design in sepia and buckram spine labels hand-lettered and stamped in pure gold leaf. They are on the original slipcase. They measure 12" x 8.25".
