Not ex-library. Book is in outstanding condition throughout. Clean, bright, tight and trim. Pages crisp. Binding and hinges strong. No previous owner marks, signatures, etc. and no abuse. Glassine protecting author portrait is perfect. Embossed boards with gilt decoration & lettering including spine, still bright and sharp. Lots of artist's portraits of important persons in the Steamboat Era and beautiful drawings of the boats themselves. A big book at 750 pages and 6.5 x 9.5 in. Last page has a list of additions to the preface and corrections. For example: " Page 742 - Fourth line from bottom; spell employs with a p." When checking these corrections, I found that the errors (9) all remain in the book, i.e. "Employs", from the aforementioned correction is spelled, "emyloys". on p.742. This leads me to believe that this book is a first edition since known errors would have been corrected in subsequent printings. A gorgeous book, now 126 years old, and important for its copious documenting of a bygone era. Email inquiries or comments welcome. Bookseller Inventory # 005745
