Product description

The Memoirs of Lieut Henry Timberlake
Henry Timberlake
The First American Frontier: Arno Press & The New York Times, reprint edition 1971.
Reprinted from a copy in the State Historical Society of Wisconsin Library: “Lieut Henry Timberlake’s Memoirs 1756-1765 with Annotation, Introduction and Index by Samuel Cole Williams, LL.D. Formerly Justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court”, The Watauga Press, Johnson City, Tennessee, 1927. Originally published London 1765.
Hardback; 145 x 220 mm; red pictorial boards with titles in white on spine and front cover; 197 pages plus unpaginated list of titles in the First American Frontier collection. No dust jacket.
Drawing in monochrome of Ostenaco, a Cherokee Chief, by Sir Joshua Reynolds, and a draught map of the Cherokee Country taken by Henry Timberlake when he was in the country in March 1762.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and tight. Bumping to the bottom of the spine, and foxing to the top edges of the leaves visible when the book is closed.
Henry Timberlake (1730 or 1735 – 1765) was a colonial Anglo-American officer, journalist, and cartographer. He was born in Virginia and died in England. He is best known for his work as an emissary from the British colonies to the Overhill Cherokee during the 1761–1762 Timberlake Expedition.
Timberlake's account of his journeys to the Cherokee, published as his memoirs in 1765, became a primary source for later studies of their 18th century culture. His detailed descriptions of Cherokee villages, townhouses, weapons, and tools have helped historians and anthropologists identify Cherokee structures and cultural objects uncovered at modern archaeological excavation sites throughout the southern Appalachian region. During the Tellico Archaeological Project, which included a series of salvage excavations conducted in the Little Tennessee River basin in the 1970s, archaeologists used Timberlake's Draught of the Cherokee Country to help locate important Overhill village sites.
It follows that this is an important historical record and will therefore appeal to those with a range of interests, historical, ethnographic, etc.
