Description: (GEOGRAPHY.) Brownlie, W. and D. A System of Geography; or, a Descriptive, Historical, and Philosophical View of the Several Quarters of the World. 21 engraved folding maps and 23 engraved plates of animals and inhabitants. 4 volumes. 8vo, contemporary calf, worn, covers detached; text, maps and plates heavily spotted and oxidized, few leaves and plates with small tears, most notably the frontis world map in volume 1. sold as is. Glasgow: Niven, Napier and Khull, 1805

Notes: With a short account on the Northwest Territory and the oftentimes ruthless early acquisition of American lands: "Of this extensive region, however, a great part yet remains to be purchased by Congress before they can dispose of it to others. It is probable, that, by some means or other, they may obtain from the native Indians, a pretty easy bargain."
