Antique print titled 'Merkwürdige Hügel - Collines Singulieres'. Aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer. A composite plate made up from twenty separate views, but with plain borders between each image. Numbered in the plate, they were all sketched during the journey up river aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora. Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833 traveling through a number of different regions including the Mauvaises Terres (eg. no. 21 in the present composite) and the Stone Walls (no. 10 and others, an area that Maximilian wrote of as `the most interesting part of the whole course of the Missouri').

Condition: Good. Blindstamp below title. Some soiling and wear, mainly in the margins. Please study images carefully.

Date: c.1840

Overall size: 55.5 x 42 cm.
