About this Item

1st edition thus, greatly expanded from editions in the early 1870s that did not include the far West. 8vo royal blue cloth with heavy gilt decorations & titles. xii, 556pp. Illustrated with engravings. Contents. Classified Index to Advertisers. Index of Cities, Towns and Places of Interest. Eight tipped in folding maps ("Saratoga", "Prospect Park, Niagara Falls", "Niagara Falls", "Caledonia Springs", "Lower St. Lawrence, and Saguenay River", "White Mountains", "City of Boston", Excursion Routes"). Also, a spectacularly long folding map in front pocket, extending to 11' 7", of the Niagara & St. Lawrence Rivers (it's called "Panorama of St. Lawrence River"). Advertisements before & after main text for several historical railroads & hotels of the NE and the West (includes the colorfully named Oregon railroad & steamship companies). One rather long tipped in fold out map has on its verso a great pictorial ad of the Chicago ,Rock Island, & Pacific RR Palace Dining car cross section showing travelers dining in luxury & leisure. The section on Chicago has many engravings, showing the great fire & the rebuilding of the city since. Includes Union Stockyards. The so-called "Western Appendix" to the book is 177pp. long, & begins with Chicago & goes to Kansas City, Omaha, Denver, Leavenworth, San Francisco, Sacramento, Oregon, & Victoria. Includes table of stations of the Union Pacific & Central Pacific railways. Most of the book is, of course, on the Niagara Falls & St. Lawrence area, with information on Toronto. The corner covers are bent at the tips & soft. Just a bit of fraying to the spine. Leading & trailing edges of the long map are have short tears & a touch of chipping. Verso of rear free endpaper is browned from prior lay-in. Slight cracking to rear hinge. The gilt is bold & beautiful, showing small shields of Canada & the U.S., & rising up between them a famous high cantilevered rock over Yosemite Valley with two people standing near the edge of it -- all in gilt! Gilt decorative devices of the U.S. eagle & the Canadian beaver. Front cover is bordered in gilt. The text pages (except for indexes & ads) are decoratively bordered in red. This item is one of the more interesting books I have had the privilege to offer for sale. Earlier editions are scarce. This greatly expanded edition is rare. Not in the usual Western bibs.
