About this Item

Linforth, James, editor. Route from Liverpool to Great Salt Lake Valley. Piercy, illustrator, Frederick. Liverpool: Franklin D. Richards, 1855. 1st edition. 120pp. Illustrated. Small folio. 3/4 brown leather with black cloth covered boards. Book condition: Fair. Binding is rubbed and bumped, backstrip is missing and boards are deatched. Pages are tightly bound and clean. Collated complete with all engravings and tri-fold map. Engraving at page 82 is loose and the one at 86 is detached and lightly word at edges. The engraved plates are quite bright with minimal foxing. Although there is no sign of secondary binding work, the frontispiece map is located at the end of the volume. It is in very good condition. The engraving usually found at page 35 is placed as the frontispiece. It retains its tissue guard. None of the other plates are protected with tissue. The folding map is black and white with red, orange and blue lines showing territorial boundaries of Utah and routes taken. A complete copy of the most impressive trail guide associated with the Mormon emigration. Would benefit from sympathetic rebacking and re-insertion of the detached plate.

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).

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.
