A description of Louisiana by Louis Hennepin( Book )

47 editions published between 1683 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Description of Louisiana, written by the Recollect friar, Father Louis Hennepin, is one of the principal sources of information about the explorations of the Sieur de La Salle in the area of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Valley, 1678-1680. Despite allowances which must be made for the vanity of the author and for his distortions of the truth, his account nevertheless possesses great value. Publication of the Description of Louisiana in France in 1683 made the author a celebrity and also helped popularize the exploits of La Salle"--Foreword

This style of printing was promoted by the Artotype Co. in 1878-9 and since the Heliotype Company received its patent rights in an exchange, this may be an example of the use of the Artotype patent."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 65
