Volume I only of the first edition; the spine is gilt-stamped "The Torch Press" and so this is likely to be a slightly later, local rebinding of the Pioneer Publishing original. (The Torch Press was based in Cedar Rapids, the largest city in Linn County.) Pages clean except for a prior owner's name at the first (blank) page, a very few fingerprints in margins, and toning along the foreedges; binding is mildly relaxed, but secure; half leather hard cover has a tear in the leather with a corner of material loss at the spine head, a split along the rear joint from the next-to-last raised band to the heel, another brief split at the bottom of the front joint, some surface wear along the spine and around edges with rub-through at the free corners and in two spots at the heel, and scattered spots to the green cloth front and back with a bit of fraying here and there along the cloth edges, but the leather has been treated and sealed, the gilt titles at the spine remain bright, and the cover remains overall attractive. 496pp., illustrated with maps and black-and-white photo reproductions.
