About this Item

St. Louis: John J. Daly & Co., 1877. [2],39pp. Gathered signatures, string-tied as issued. Fine. Initialed by Waterhouse on the first page of text. "A firm believer in the future of the Middle West, [Waterhouse] was an ardent advocate of improving the Mississippi River, attended numerous conventions on river development, and in 1877 was chosen to write an extended memorial to Congress on the subject" - DAB. A Harvard-trained classicist, Waterhouse, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, argues that improving the Mississippi would aid commerce and the delivery of food to various parts of the nation, lower costs of transportation and insurance, and aid in national defense. DAB XIX, p.533. Bookseller Inventory # 1238
