PATTIE, James O. The Personal Narrative of James O. Pattie, of Kentucky, During An Expedition from St. Louis, through the Vast Regions Between that Place and the Pacific Ocean, and Thence Back through the City of Mexico to Vera Cruz. Cincinnati: Published by E.H. Flint, 1833. 300pp. plus five plates. Contemporary marbled calf, spine gilt ruled, gilt leather label. Spine slightly worn, front hinge rubbed. Toned, as usual for this book, with an occasional dampstain. About very good. The second edition of Pattie's narrative, differing from the 1831 edition only in the reprinted titlepage. The sheets in each edition are from the same printing. The editor and virtual author, Cincinnati literary lion Timothy Flint, achieved such a poor sale of the original edition that he canceled the titlepage and reissued the work with the 1833 date to make it seem current. The Pattie account is one of the classics of Western Americana. The author and his father were engaged in the fur trade in the Southwest in the 1820s. In 1828 they went overland to California, only the second American group to make the trip by a southern route (the first was Jedediah Smith in 1826) and the first to publish an account of their journey. The party experienced difficulty and dangers in New Mexico, Arizona, and California, where they were tossed in jail by Mexican authorities and the elder Pattie died. The son was released after he aided in vaccinating people during a smallpox epidemic. A major work of Californiana and Western Americana. GRAFF 3217. WAGNER-CAMP 45:2. CLARK III:83. HILL 1317.
