About this Item

BARBER, JOHN W., and HENRY HOWE. Historical Collections of the State of New Jersey; Containing a General Collection of the Most Interesting Facts, Traditions, Biographical Sketches, Anecdotes, Etc. Relating to its History and Antiquities, with Geographical Descriptions of Every Township in the State. New York, 1844. 512 p. Illus. Plates (2 in color). Contemporary sheep. Some staining of endpaper edges from leather turn-ins, foxed as always, but an unusually nice and solid copy of a book whose original binding is almost always found in deplorable condition. First edition of the most popular general history of New Jersey, in a rare intact original binding. Over the next 24 years the book went through several printings, each with minor revisions. The many charming woodcuts of town views are particularly appealing. The poor quality sheepskin used to bind this edition is usually found deteriorated beyond repair; this copy is a rare survivor. For a lengthy essay on this remarkable book, and a bibliographical analysis of the various editions, see Felcone, New Jersey Books, 352 et seq. Bookseller Inventory # 2475
