John Jacob Astor's attempt in 1811 to establish the first American settlement on the Pacific Coast. Prepared in part to correct some aspects of Washingtom Irving's account of the Astorians, this edition in English was translated by Jedediah Vincent Huntington (1815-1862) and appeared when the author was retired in Brooklyn. This is cited as the second edition, but in fact is the first American edition. First edition in English, illustrated with three plates and enlarged from the original French edition. First published in French in 1820, Franchere's work was "the first printed account in book form of John Jacob Astor's attempt to establish the Pacific Fur Company post at the mouth of the Columbia River. The author, a Canadian, was one of the party sent out by John Jacob Astor to establish his colony at Astoria and he describes the voyage up the Columbia. "To this translation of the original work, the author contributed new material in the form of a Preface to the Second Edition, an additional chapter in which he alludes to the many changes that had occurred to the scenes which he had long ago visited and described, and an Appendix in which he gives an account of some of the persons who left Astoria before and after its transfer to the British" (Graff 1400). "Most important source on the Astor adventure" (Howes F310). Bookseller Inventory # 629
