Description:

Paged as i-xii, [2], 11-332, [24]. Hardcover: H 18.5cm x L 12cm. Original light brown full calf leather binding; boards scuffed at edges with corners worn, slender dark stain at front board's left center; spine ends worn nearly even with top and bottom text block edges; spine decorated with black title label with bright gilt stamped lettering; lengthwise splitting to front and rear joints leaving front board pliable but rear board only slightly so. Text block binding remain firm. Some foxing and toning throughout. Small pencil notation on rear pastedown with lightly written pencil price notation at front free endpaper's top right corner. Ffep also has interesting pencil two-line ownership inscription at top half of page: "Beverly D. Young | University of Mississippi." A good copy. Beverly Daniel Young (1828-1863) was the second of ten children of Col. George Hampton Young (1799-1881) and Lucy Woodson Watkins Young (1800-1852) who owned the architecturally renowned Waverly Plantation on the west bank of the Tombigbee River between Columbus and West Point, Mississippi. A lawyer and native of Georgia who moved to Mississippi in 1835 during the land rush created by the Choctaw and Chickasaw territorial cessions, Colonel Young was perhaps the wealthiest man in north Mississippi in the antebellum era. Having already served in the Georgia legislature, Young was elected to the Mississippi legislature in 1849 and was a charter member of the University of Mississippi Board of Trustees. Although chartered in 1844, Ole Miss did not open for classes until the fall of 1848 and school records cite Beverly Daniel Young and younger brother Thomas Erskine Young (1831-1869) as Class of 1851 graduates of the Department of the Arts which, as it was the first matriculating class, means both brothers probably enrolled in the university's incipient session. As this edition of Page's "Elements of Geology" was published in 1849 this book was likely used in Beverly D. Young's second year of studies and is certainly the earliest item with a solid University of Mississippi association that this bookseller has encountered. Serving as a private during the Civil War with Company I, 11th Mississippi, "Bev" Young was wounded at Gettysburg and died as a prisoner of war on August 28th, 1863 at the U.S. War Department's De Camp General Hospital on Davids' Island, New York.
