Full title: "History of the expedition under the command of Captains Lewis and Clark, to the sources of the Missouri: thence across the Rocky mountains and down the river Columbia to the Pacific ocean: performed during the years 1804-5-6: by order of the government of the United States, prepared for the press by Paul Allen, Esquire."
From the Colton Storm catalogue: "According to Miss Sowerby, Jefferson received two copies of the work bound in calf and eleven in boards. This is undoubtedly the copy sent by Jefferson to Clark, although a covering letter has not yet been located. Julia Clark was the wife of William Clark. Their third son and fourth child was George Rogers Hancock Clark (1816-1858). He inherited the volumes and his eldest child, Julia Clark, received them. She later married a man by the name of Voorhis and they had a daughter, Eleanor Glasgow Voorhis. The so-called Voorhis material was used by Thwaites for his 1904 edition of the Journals and parts of it were sold years later by G. A. Baker & Co., Max Hartzoff's auction house in New York. The present copy of the 'History' came into the hands of W. J. Holliday at whose sale it was offered in 1954. The fact of Jefferson's ownership was not mentioned."
