Through the Brazilian Wilderness.

Roosevelt, Theodore

New York: Charles Scribners Sons, 1914. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Illustrated from photographs taken by Kermit Roosevelt and other members of the expedition, frontispiece with tissue-guard; 3 maps, including 1 folding in the rear. Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Frederic A. Ames, a first-class American, with all good wishes, from Theodore Roosevelt June 14th 1918." The recipient, Frederic Ames was an early American automobile manufacturer in Owensboro, Kentucky, from 1910 to 1925. A beetle-backed "gentleman's roadster" and a five passenger tourer were the first models offered for sale by the company. The company also produced replacement bodies for the Ford Model T. At its peak the company produced approximately 30,000 vehicles. In near fine condition with light toning to the spine. Housed in a custom half leather clamshell box. One of the more difficult titles in the Roosevelt canon to find signed and inscribed, and with such a warm inscription. Roosevelt's popular book Through the Brazilian Wilderness describes his expedition into the Brazilian jungle in 1913 as a member of the Roosevelt-Rondon Scientific Expedition co-named after its leader, Brazilian explorer C^andido Rondon. The book describes all of the scientific discovery, scenic tropical vistas and exotic flora, fauna and wild life experienced on the expedition, as well as the exciting human dramas which occurred during the expedition.

Through the Brazilian Wilderness

ROOSEVELT, Theodore (1858-1919)

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1914. Large 8vo. Photogravure frontispiece and 48 half-tone plates, one folding and 2 full-page maps. Publisher's cloth, upper cover and spine stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Housed in a red morocco box. Provenance: Lola Edith Lowther (presentation inscription by Roosevelt, dated 13 May 1915) Rare presentation copy of the first edition. After losing his bid for a third term in the White House, Roosevelt accepted an invitation from the Brazilian government to accompany explorer Candido Rondon on an expedition to descend the River of Doubt (now named Rio Roosevelt) through an unexplored region of the Amazon. This work recounts his harrowing 1913-1914 journey, in which Roosevelt nearly died. The expedition would prove to be Roosevelt's last great adventure and Through the Brazilian Wilderness among the final works published in his lifetime. Interestingly, this volume was inscribed in the midst of Roosevelt's 1915 libel trial, having been sued for calling New York Republican leader William Barnes "a political boss of the most obnoxious type." The trial, held in Syracuse (it being deemed a more neutral jurisdiction than Albany), lasted from 19 April to 22 May, 1915, when the jury found in Roosevelt's favor. Roosevelt would later write that the toll which the trial took on him ensured the end of his active participation in politics. During the course of the trial, Roosevelt stayed at the home of his friend Horace Wilkinson, the founder of Crucible Steel. The present volume is inscribed to Horace Wilkinson's wife's niece, Lola Edith Lowther.

Through the Brazilian Wilderness.

ROOSEVELT, Theodore.

New York, Scribner, 1914. Large 8vo. Original brown cloth, ornamented and lettered in gilt; pp. xiv, [2], 383, frontispiece, numerous plates, three maps (one folding); apart from light fading of spine and contemporary presentation inscription to front fly-leaf, fine. First editionof the account of Roosevelt's 'zoogeographic reconnaissance' with the Brazilian explorer Rondon to discover if the Rio da Dúvida ('River of Doubt'), flowed into the Amazon. Traversing some of the most dangerous territory of Amazonia, the party was successful and the river was renamed Rio Roosevelt, sometimes Rio Teodoro, in his honour. The travellers observed wildlife, report on various indigenous tribes and their societies, as well some big game hunting. 'Almost from the start, the expedition was fraught with problems. Insects and disease such as malaria weighed heavily on just about every member of the expedition, leaving them in a constant state of sickness, festering wounds and high fevers. The heavy dug-out canoes were unsuitable to the constant rapids and were often lost, requiring days to build new ones. The food provisions were ill-conceived forcing the team on starvation diets. Natives (the Cinta Larga) shadowed the expedition and were a constant source of concern - the Indians could have at any time wiped out the expedition and taken their valuable metal tools but they chose to let them pass (future expeditions in the 1920s were not so lucky). One of the camaradas murdered another, while a third was killed in a rapid .. By the time the expedition had made it only about one-quarter of the way down the river, they were physically exhausted and sick from starvation, disease and the constant labour of hauling canoes around rapids. Roosevelt himself was near death as a wounded leg had become infected and the party feared for his life each day. Luckily they came upon "rubber men" or "seringueiros", impoverished rubber-tappers who earned a marginal living from the forest trees driven by the new demand for rubber tires in the United States. The seringueiros helped the team down the rest of the river (less rapid-prone than the upper reaches) and Roosevelt made it home alive to live five more years. Due to the trip, his health never fully recovered' (www.theodore-roosevelt.com/trbrazil.html). Borba de Moraes p. 747.
