All Authors / Contributors: Pehr Kalm; Johann Reinhold Forster; William Eyres; Pre-1801 Imprint Collection (Library of Congress)
OCLC Number: 708941
Language Note: Translation of: Resa til Norra America. Based on the German translation by Johann Philipp and Johann Andreas Murray: "The present volume of Professor Kalm's travels though North America, is originally written in the Swedish language, but was immediately afterward translated into the German by the two Murray's, both of whom are Swedes, and one a pupil of Dr. Linnæus, and therefore we may be sure that this translation corresponds exactly with the original."--Preface, v. 1, page [iii].
Notes: This translation omits a great number of details, as well as the author's account of his stay in England, which fills most of the first volume of the original edition. Kalm's travels took him to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Quebec. The plates, all unsigned, contain depictions of American birds and animals not found in the original edition (raccoon, skunk, flying squirrel, chipmunk, grackle, red-winged blackbird, passenger pigeon, mockingbird, and American robin) as well as a view of Cohoes Falls copied from the original plate.
The map, not issued with the first copies, is sometimes missing.
