San Marino: The Huntington Library, 1967 First edition. One of 1500 copies designed by Ward Ritchie. Edited by Dale L. Morgan and Eleanor Towles Harris. 430 pp. Frontis portrait, endpaper maps; bibliography, index. Gilt-lettered cloth. Slight foxing to extreme fore-edge of text block. A very fine copy with pictorial dust jacket. An eyewitness account providing the only record of William Sublette's historic race to the fur traders' rendezvous at Hams Fork in 1834. Also unique is Anderson's description of the founding of Ft. Laramie, or Ft. Williams as it was originally named. Includes a biography of Anderson and biographical sketches of many other important mountain men. " Entries from his (Anderson) edited diary and the narrative history written from the diary are printed on facing pages... Slightly less than half the book, however, is an alphabetical series of biographical essays on notable figures in the early American fur trade. As a whole this book is a significant encyclopedic source for the study of the American fur trade era" (Saunders). [Mattes: 40; Saunders, Morgan: 58; Wagner-Camp: 64a, note].. (Inventory #: 7894)
