About this Item

451 pages, plus 5+ pages ads, plus three folding maps, two plates, and frontispiece. Ex-Library. Red blind-stamped cloth is very worn with chips, tears, and a little loss of cloth along edges. White inked library numbers on spine. Front cover is detached, as well as blank front free end page and leaf of publisher's ads at front of volume. Detached leaves are mostly intact, though do show scattered light edge wear. Library card pocket on front paste down. Previous owner's circular blind stamp on blank front free end page. Penciled, non-author, presentation inscription on blank recto of frontispiece, dated Dec. 25th, 1857. Title page with small inked number in blank space and letter "C" at left of publisher's name. Inked library numbers in blank space of copyright page. Contents are otherwise clean and free of any library, or other, markings. First folding map is slightly misfolded, though clean and intact. Second folding map is also a little misfolded and shows a one inch closed tear from bottom edge. Tear has previously been repaired with non-archival tape and is a little yellowed. Lettering in caption is just a little affected, though remains legible. There is a little light wear along bottom edge of this map outside the borders. Third folding map is in very good condition. Text block remains very tight. This would make a good binding or working copy. Bookseller Inventory # 028153

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
