Excerpt: . . . near, informed us too plainly that the water belonged to one of those fetid salt lakes which are common in this regign. We continued until late in the evening to work along the rocky shore, but, as often afterwards, the dry inhospitable rock deceived us; and, halting on the lake, we kindled up fires to guide those who were straggling along behind. We tried the water, but it was impossible to drink it, and most of the people to-night lay down without eating; but some of us, who had always a great reluctance to close the day without supper, dug holes along the shore, and obtained water, which, being filtered, was sufiiciently palatable to be used, but still retained much of its nauseating taste. There was very little grass for the animals, the shore being lined with a luxuriant growth of chenopodiaceous shrubs, which burned with a quick bright flame, and made our firewood. . The next morning we had scarcely travelled two hours along the shore when we reached a place where the mountains made a bay, leaving at their feet a low bottom around the lake. Here we found numerous liillocks covered with rushes, in the midst of which were deep holes, or springs, of pure water; and the bottom was covered with grass, which, although of a alt and unwholesome quality, and mixed with saline efliorescences, was still abundant, and made a good halting place to recruit our animals; and. we according-ly encamped here for the remainder of the day. I rode ahead several miles to ascertain ifthere was any appearance of a watercourse entering the lake; but found none, the hills preserving their dry character, and the shore of the lake sprinkled with the same white powdery substance, and covered with the same shrubs.

Book Description Gales & Seaton, Printers, Washington, 1845. First edition, Senate issue. Original dark brown ribbed cloth stamped in blind and with gilt spine title, octavo (6 x 9.25 inches), 693pp. 22 lithograph plates, including 13 views, 5 plates of fossils, and 4 botanical plates. 4 maps bound in, including 2 folding maps, large (30 x 50-inch) lithograph map by Charles Preuss in separate folder. Senate issue, including the astronomical and meteorological reports omitted from the House issue (and later reprints). Fremont's expeditions of 1842-44 resulted in the first reliably mapped route to the west coast. As expedition leader, Fremont achieved all he set out to do and more. After attaining his objective in Oregon in the fall of 1843 he turned his party south to the Great Basin and then -following the Truckee River- crossed the Sierra Nevada in January and February of 1844, reaching Sutter's Fort on March 6 without losing a man, though only half the party's animals reached their destination and a brass cannon was abandoned on the way. One of the folding maps in the text charts the course of the Rio de los Americanos (American RIver) from Mountain Lake (Lake Tahoe) to the Sacramento at New Helvetia. The large map accompanying his report was drawn by Charles Preuss, Fremont's topographical assistant (though he is not credited in the legend) and it is considered a monument of field topography and mapmaking. Zamorano 80 #39, Cowan page 223, Wagner-Camp IV:115:1, Graf 1436, Howes F370). Rebacked with original spine laid down, original endpapers. Cover cloth is very clean and gilt spine title unworn. Some spotting to plates, but text, plates and maps are overall remarkably clean and bright. Large folding map with some wear to folds, but near very good. Bookseller Inventory # 20328
