RAY ALLEN BILLINGTON
Land of Savagery - Land of Promise; the European Image of the American Frontier in the Nineteenth Century
Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1985. 1st UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS PAPERBA. Paperback. 15.3x23.2CM. ".presents a fresh view of the American frontier, as it was seen by literate Europeans during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In his research, Ray Allen Billington, "the premier frontier historian in the United States," read what a typical European would have read about America: travel accounts, guidebooks, "America letters," promotional literature of land and railroad companies, propaganda of territorial and state immigration agencies, emigration newspapers, and fiction. Two concepts of the American frontier emerged from those sources: America was both a land of promise, where prosperity and liberty awaited Europe's downtrodden." Seemingly unread, tight and true, bright covers, rear lower fore edge corner creased, discoloured rectangle on rear over ISBN from sticker removal; old erased pencilled price faintly visible on half title page..

ARTHUR FALLOWS
Journal of Arthur Fallows
USA: University Microfilms, Inc, 1966. FACSIMILE. Hardcover. 14.5x21.5cm. "Unlike the French, who possessed a natural highway into the interior of North America via the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes, the English colonists of the 17th century confronted a formidable barrier to westward expansion by reason of the Appalachian Mountains. Curiosity to discover what lay on the other side of the mountains was keen, however. Some speculated that "the Indian Ocean" might stretch an Arm or Bay from California into the Continent as far as the Apalatean Mountains." John Lederer, a German explorer who had come to Virginia, held this opinion and attempted three times in 1669 and 1670 to cross the mountain chain, but without success. The first successful crossing of the Appalachians of which we have any record was not accomplished until 1671. Robert Fallows (Fallam), a member of the party which performed that feat, wrote the journal reproduced here." MARCH OF AMERICA FACSIMILE SERIES #33; ex college library carefully used if at all; blue cloth, gilt/silver titling front and spine, darkened areas on front near head of spine where stickers removed, negligible similar strip near base of spine, no edgewear, binding sound; one college stamp on title page, five digit ink stamp and pencilled code on publisher page, partial remains of pastedown top of rear free endpaper, main content fine..

WILLIAM OLIVER
Eight Months in Illinois
USA: University Microfilms, Inc, 1966. FACSIMILE. Hardcover. 12x17cm. "In December of 1841, William Oliver, an Englishman, set out from New York City on a trip to the Midwest which allowed him to spend several months in the state of Illinois. Upon his return to England so many persons interested in emigrating to America questioned him about conditions there that he decided to publish an account of what he had seen. The "poorer classes" in England were those for whom he wrote primarily. Although his Eight Months in Illinois; With Information To Emigrants (published in 1843) contains a great variety of information about life in America, it is especially valuable for its picture of economic conditions in the state of Illinois."
