Book Description Andreas & Baskin, Chicago, 1875. Hardcover. Condition: Good -. First Edition. Largo folio, 113pp., illustrated. Good at best in the publisher's black cloth, missing most of hte backstrip, which is replaced with much older cloth tape - an adequate, if not lovely, repair. First and last few leaves dust-soiled with some chips. Internally quite clean. The Ohio state map has several large tears, but is basically complete. This Lucas county atlas is scarce in commerce. There is some pencil drawing on pp. 36-37 ("City of Toledo," Part Seven), which corresponds with a three-page holograph letter (each leaf 8" x 13") authored by a Jacob Gogel, which discusses some recent proposals by city officials to turn Swan Creek into a sewer, and extend Summit Street across the river. Gogel makes some other suggestions in his letter (whose addressee is unclear), and many of those do not seem to have ended up coming into fruition, though his rendering of the proposed Summit Street bridge is very accurate. His letter is a window into the minds of the "city fathers" of the period, with several lines such as the following: "The city of Toledo at the present time is making greater strides to become a large metropolitan city than ever in its history.(etc.)." There is also a drawing on another leaf (about 6.5" x 16"), which Gogel dates 1886, further illustrating his proposal. A very nice and informative addition to the atlas itself.
