First edition of both volumes. Title continues: With an Annotated Reprint of His "Scenes in the Rocky Mountains, and in Oregon, California, New Mexico, Texas and the Grand Prairies. Handsomely printed on Corsican paper. According to CLARK & BRUNET, the Hafens had done prior work with the Arthur H. Clark Company, but their relationship was "fully established with the 15-volume Far West and Rockies Series."

A work of enduring quality and scholarship, these two volumes reveal Sage went West for the express purpose of writing about his experiences; the result is one of the best descriptions we have of the central Rocky Mountain region in the early 1840s. Production run of these volumes was 1,250 and 1,257 copies, respectively. CLARK & BRUNET, 104: IV & V.
