This first edition, first printing of “Life of Col. John C. Fremont” was published the year Fremont ran for President. It features 8 full-page engraved plates throughout! A truly iconic piece of Americana literature. According to Sabin,

“Mr. Smucker’s memoir of Col. Fremont forms p. 5-72. The rest of the book is a reprint of Col. Fremont’s official ‘A Report on an Exploration of the Country lying between the Missouri River and the Rocky Mountains,’ 1843, Senate ed.”
