Title: Galena and Its Lead Mines.
Publisher: N.p. n.y., N.p.
Small 4to. Full green calf, gilt spine lettering. Pp. 681-696 (rectos only). 12 steel engravings, 1 map. Very good. Spine and binding edges sunned to golden brown. Bibliographically cryptic facsimile reprint of this 16-page extract from the May 1866 issue of "Harper's New Monthly Magazine" (Vol. XXXII, No. CXCII) -- an article that follows up on U.S. Grant's postwar fame, profiling the famed lead mining town in northwest Illinois that had become his home just prior to the Civil War. Front wrapper engraving depicts Galena's Main Street bulging with people assembled to hear the returning hero. A massive banner spans the street, proclaiming "Hail to the Chief Who in Triumph Advances." Though an extract, it is self-contained and sought after in its own right. This undated reprint (circa 1970?) is printed on an off-white stock, artificially age toned to lend it a period feel. It's also slightly enlarged from the original. Scarce.
