Note: William Reynold's copy with over 100 notations. Reynold's penciled notations challenge Wilkes' narrative repeatedly and seem to lay the basis for the Memorial of Officers published in 1847 (and tipped in this set). Includes vol 6, Ethnography and Philology, by Horatio Hale, with the Ethnographical Map of Oregon. Most maps without color. Maps are spread across other volumes besides the one entitled "Atlas." All text volumes bound with brown cloth and embossed with an eagle on the front and the title on the spine.
