About this Item

Superb copy of this important work. Each volume has a green cloth dust jacket. Vol 1's d/j has some spotting on bottom half. The green cloth is lovely with gilt spine and a gilt outline on the cover with a gilt design of (i think) a sea lion. There are four maps in these volumes and one of the maps is a folding map with two separate maps of the expedition's routes to and from. This map is present but loose or detached from the book. Unfortunate because the books have seen little use and are in great shape, as usual cloth dust jackets hide beautiful books and really protect them. One other flaw and that is that the original or an earlier owner of the books put a bookplate on the inside cover in both volumes. Still a very beautiful set with all colored plates of landscapes, Birds by Louis a. Fuentes truly wonderful, Mammals by Charles Knight and Flowers by Frederick Walpole also magnificent. All of the photogravure plates and maps present, Written by to drop a few names - George Bird Grinell, John Muir, John Burroughs, William Dall and Henry Gannett. A truly rare and specical book and you will be hard pressed to find a better copy. Bookseller Inventory # 004503
