The John André The Cow Chace collection consists of a volume of the The Cow Chace, published in Albany in 1866, that has been re-bound with interfiled illustrations of people and places referenced in the poem. Following the published edition is a manuscript of the poem, incorrectly identified as one created by André prior to the poem's publication. Next in the volume are letters from Benson Lossing and Doctor J.K. [Jeffs?] attesting that the manuscript copy of the poem is in André's handwriting. The volume ends with a facsimile of Arnold's Pass and additional illustrations.
