Description:

INCOMPLETE SET - ISSUED WITH NINE PARTS BUT ONLY PARTS 1, 4, 5, 6, AND 8 PRESENT. Original dark olive green cloth case, H 34.75cm x L 28.25cm, rubbed with some light staining; gilt stamping upon front board remains vibrant; silk ribbon ties at affixed near boards' fore-edges are now creased and frayed with some nicks and tears. Only five of original nine parts present, each being staple-bound and H 34.5cm x L 27.25cm. Slate gray paper covers; front covers decorated with pictorial floral illustration and lettering contrasting to blank rear covers. No text other than title page and captions for unpaged b/w photogravure plates (either one, two, or four images per page) all printed on rectos only with blank versos (i.e. single-sided leaves); interlaying tissue guard sheets present between plates most with varied creasing and a few with tears. Some soiling and fingerprint smudges mostly at margins with a few bottom fore-edge corners slightly nicked/bumped. PART 1: title leaf and eight plates (with 20 images) plus covers. PART 4: title leaf and seven plates (with 21 images) plus covers; tissue guard sheet missing for fourth plate. PART 5: title leaf and seven plates (with 21 images) plus covers. PART 6: title leaf and seven plates (with 21 images) plus covers. PART 8: title leaf plus eight plates (with 24 images) plus covers. Wonderful early 20th century photographic documentation of Memphis, Tennessee with views of parks, residences of notable citizens, government buildings, and at least one impressive full-page downtown streetscape titled "Scene on South Main" as Part 8-Plate #5. OCLC cites two earlier editions for 1900 and 1912 in addition to this 1926 edition but evidently all are quite scarce as OCLC locates a total of nine copies among eight member institutions. Please note that this large book has an approximate shipping weight of 5 pounds (2.26 kg) and will require additional postage and insurance for any postal class other than domestic Media Mail.
