History of Tennessee, up to the First Settlements Therein by

the White People, in the Year 1768. 8vo, original mottled

calf. Nashville : Printed by George Wilson, 1823

The Excessively Eare FIRST EDITION. This work, described

by Mr. Field over thirty years ago as "Exceedingly rare and

highly prized," has latterly become one of the most sought

after and most difficult to procure of the works relating to the

American Aborigines. Judge Haywood, the author, came to

Tennessee at a time when relics of the early Indians were in

quantities sufficient to afford ample opportunity for his in-

vestigations, and in his work he gives a careful record of these

researches, which have been accepted as a most valuable addi-

tion to the literature of the subject.

The E. D. Church copy, in splendid original condition.

the fact that the gallant explorer has been censured for the

45



h



lack of geographical information, the book contains some re-
markable observations respecting the climatic conditions and is
interspersed with valuable descriptions of various parts of
North America which were visited. The map is considered to-
day a singularly correct delineation of the high latitudes in
which Hudson, Baffin, James, and Fox pursued their search for
the North-west passage.

The "Aduise" called for on the title and signed in the text
' ' Yours X. Z. " was written by William Watts.
