About this Item

Beechey, Frederick William. Narrative of a Voyage to the Pacific and Beering [Bering] Strait, to Co-operate with the Polar Expeditions: Performed in His Majesty's Ship Blossom, under the Command of Captain F.W. Beechey, R.N. in the Years 1825, 26, 27, 28. Two volumes bound in O. London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1831. xviii, vii, 742pp. Illustrated. 4to. Book condition: Very good. This copy has been rebacked, laying down the orignal leather back strip. Some rubbing to leather, but the gilt titles are very legible. Marbled paper cover boards have some rubbing but are still attractive. New endsheets with the bookplate of former owner inserted. This copy was an ex-library copy, from two institutions actually, with barely discernible label removal to spine and institution stamps to all three edges of text. There are faint embossed stamps to all plates, maps and a few occasional pages. Since end sheets have been replaced no call tag or pockets, there are a few places in the text with the withdrawal date in pencil. Internally bright with just a touch of foxing, mostly to plates, there are some notations in ink on page 567 in a contemporary hand. The second fold out map has a tear to its attachment, entering into the map and the map was crudely folded with some creases to edges. Book has been collated and is missing only the frontispiece.

Store Description

Weller Book Works sells new used and rare books. The bookstore was founded as Zion Bookstore in 1929 by Tony Weller's grandfather Gustav and is now owned and operated by Tony and Catherine Weller. WBW is a member of the American Booksellers Association (ABA), the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America (ABAA), the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB/LILA) and the Mountains & Plains Booksellers Association (MPIBA). We are also members of The Salt Lake Vest Pocket Business Coalition, Local First, and the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce. Weller Book Works occupies 9000 square feet in historic Trolley Square, between Salt Lake City?s downtown and University districts and the Avenues and Sugarhouse. The store has two levels and ceilings high enough for salvaged local antique streetlights; it has an open industrial feel with exposed brick walls, stained concrete floors and salvaged metal on counters and facades. Our books are well organized and curated by 12 avid readers and diligent booksellers. We sell new, second hand and rare books of many topics with strong selections of literature, art, history, juvenile books and local culture. We also sell e-books via the KOBO link on our website. Additionally, Weller Book Works sells practical books, like cooking, self-help, crafts and how-to. We order new books and search for out-of-print and rare copies. In addition to books, we sell journals, cards, literary T-shirts and gift items. Our Rare Book Department showcases fine and collectible books of all topics with special expertise in Local History, Mormonism and Literature. We perform appraisals, host author readings, signings and other bookish affairs and we provide special services to libraries, schools, institutions and book groups.
