EMORY, LT. W.H. Notes of a Military Reconnoisance [sic] From Fort Leavenworth, in Missouri, to San Diego, in California, New York: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1848. Octavo, Senate edition, pp. 416, 43 plates, brown cloth boards with paper label to spine. Howes E145 calls for a folding map in a rear pocket, but the present copy has neither map nor pocket. Howes believed the House version of Emory's report was released before this Senate version, which is shorter and supposedly has the folding map. The horticultural plates here are by Endicott, and all the others are by Weber.
