Abstract

A copy of the rare 1845 imperial octavo 'London' edition of Captain Charles Wilkes' Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition exists in the National Library of Australia collection with original cloth bindings and ornamental blind and gold stamping featuring the seal of the United States on the front and back covers.1 This set of five volumes plus atlas allow us to obtain a precise bibliographic description of this little known variant of the Narrative.
