About this Item

Small 8vo. Red blind-embossed cloth with gilt spine. 412pp. Frontispiece, engraved title page, 3 full-page plates, foldout color map, front endpaper text. Very good. Contemporary nonauthorial gift inscription on inner flyleaf; spine is rather faded and rubbed, extending slightly onto front board., but internally bright and tight. Tight and attractive third printing of this state survey first published by Redfield in 1853 -- this reissue likely occasioned by the Minnesota Territory's pending statehood, which came to the fore in 1856 and was finalized in 1858. Handsome sepia-tone frontispiece titled "St. Paul" and engraved title page image titled "Falls of St. Anthony." Large (17¼" X 13 3/4") foldout map tipped to rear pastedown is bright and lovely, with no fold separations or weaknesses and just mild age toning; titled "Map of Minnesota Territory," it was published by Charles DeSilver of Philadelphia in 1856. SABIN 6284. Bookseller Inventory # 34567
