[New Orleans, Louisiana guidebook published primarily for travelers to the city's 1884-1885 World's Cotton Centennial Exposition.] by Pedrick, W.E. William W. Williams (publisher)..

Description:

First edition. [6], 1-209, [3] pages plus covers. Paperback; H 17.25cm x L 11.75cm. Original light brown paper covers with staple-bound binding; front cover illustrated with an inset bird's-eye view of the Crescent City from an aerial Westbank perspective angled toward the Vieux Carre and American Sector (Faubourg St. Mary) riverfront and inland with an exaggerated Exposition building visible at the far left in the city's uptown Audubon Park neighborhood. Covers lightly rubbed with minor soiling and slight scuffing along edges, rear cover's top corner creased with small chip, slender 2cm chip at worn spine heel with shallow loss at nicked head. Covers still firmly attached. Last interior leaf has small chip at top corner; pages 203-206 creased at top corners. Interior pages are clean and binding remains fairly crisp. Still an attractive very good copy of a scarce city guide as OCLC lists only eight copies among member libraries. First leaf has full-page verso illustrated advertisement for shell loading machine manufactured by Chamberlin Cartridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio; two ads on recto. Second leaf has a full-page verso ad for the Florida Short Line, East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia Rail Road with full-page land sale ad on recto. Last unpaged leaf has verso full-page ad for the Kentucky Central Railroad with recto ad for the Cleveland Rubber Company. The text provides a history of New Orleans, paragraph summaries of assorted city and suburban landmarks, a brief review of Mardi Gras (pages 129-131), and section on the Cotton Centennial Exposition (pages 141-156) which was held from December 1884 to May 1885. List of hotels, boarding houses, and private houses with rooms with per-day price-list (pages 157-158), restaurant list (page 159), followed by lists of banks, churches (with racial designations), cemeteries, etc., as well as streetcar lines to the Exposition as well as river ferries and steamers. Index (pages 206-209). NEW ORLEANS AS IT IS was one of at least two 1885 guidebooks sold to Exposition tourists, the other being the Lafcadio Hearn and George Washington Cable collaboration HISTORICAL SKETCH BOOK AND GUIDE TO NEW ORLEANS AND ENVIRONS. Presumably Pedrick's guidebook was marketed to Midwestern travelers per its Cleveland imprint and the inclusion of the aforementioned railroad ads. Coincidentally a guidebook sharing the same primary title - "New Orleans As It Is: Its Manners and Customs, Morals, Fashionable Life, Profanation of the Sabbath, Prostitution, Licentiousness, Slave Markets and Slavery, Etc." - was published in Utica, New York in 1849.
