Folio, gilt-stamped cloth. 162 pages, with 688 maps on 166 plates. Cover a little scuffed but still very good and fairly bright. Internal contents fine. First Edition. Howes P-138; Basler: "Guide to the Study of the United States of America" #2974. Sheehy DB:162 ".indispensable in any library doing much work in United States history." "This is the first major historical atlas of the United States and probably the most comprehensive work of its kind that has yet been published for any country. After nearly 25 years it remains unrivaled. It was just 20 years in the making, work having begun in 1912 on a plan drawn up nine years earlier by J. Franklin Jameson, who closely supervised the enterprise through its first 15 years. Many scholars, scientists, libraries, archives and Government agencies cooperated in its making.The major subdivisions are concerned with geography, cartography (1492-1867), lands, population, boundaries, politics, reforms and economics." (Basler: "Guide to the Study of the United States of America"). Bookseller Inventory # 9253
