Alvord was at the Univ. of Illinois when he wrote this, with the intent of giving credit to early Virginians in these explorations. Sections include the dicovery of the Ohio waters, discovery of New Brittaine, discoveries of John Lederer, the role of Governor Berkeley as a promoter of these explorations, the Batts & Fallam expedition, the journeys of Needham and Arthur and more (including a memorandum by John Locke pertaining to the latter journeys). Illustrated by maps of explorations, facsimile of John Ledere's map and others (not heavily illustrated). This is a nice early historical account of the subject.. Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

About The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books

The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books is owned and operated by Joel & Deborah Kovarsky. We first opened in 1998, but have had a decades-old interest in old maps, books, and paper, stemming from a comparable long-standing interest in how knowledge is used. Our business is run via the internet. We do not run an open shop, however we do welcome visitors by appointment only. Before attempting a visit, please contact us. We are a specialty business, dealing in antiquarian maps and related books (atlases, history of cartography, selected reference books, etc.). Please feel free to contact us for specific inquiries.
