Paris: H. Vrayet de Surcy, Éditeur, rue de Sèvres, 19. (Impr. de A. Mertens et Fils, rue de l’Esenalier, a Bruxelles), 1866. In contemporary blue cloth. Gilt ornamentation on front panel, and gilt title on spine. (4), [i]–iv, [9]–322, (2) p. (with page numbers 121-145 on a single page, as explained in errata note) and 2 folding maps. Few spots and occasional foxing, overall in very good condition.

Abbé Rossi’s travel to Washington Territory, northern California and Nevada, with 2 folding maps of Washington Territory and California.

Abbé Louis Rossi went to Washington Territory as a missionary in 1856 with Bishop Blanchet, and was later assigned to northern California and Nevada. The text describes Rossi's voyage to the Pacific Coast, his missionary labours and journeys around the northwest, with individual chapters on San Juan Island, San Francisco, and Humboldt Bay. One of the attractive folding maps is of California, and the other is of Washington Territory and northern Oregon.

The work had two editions earlier under the title “Six ans en Amérique, Californie et Orégon” (Paris & Brussels 1863. Ruffet et Cie.; Sabin 73419.), and another edition with the same title in Paris, in 1864. Supposedly all are the same print, as all editions had the same error in paging (p. 121).
