About this Item

Three volumes, octavo. Hand-colored engraved folding frontispiece map, folding chart. Contemporary half-calf, marbled boards, blind- and gilt-decorated on spines, black morocco lettering-pieces. In 1828, Hall visited Quebec, Pennsylvania, New York and the New England states, New Orleans, the Mississippi and the Ohio river valleys. "Accustomed to a better-disciplined society and bred in the exacting traditions of the British Navy, he found difficulty in adjusting himself to the democratic manners and rude accommodations he found in the United States, both North and South. Nevertheless, he was a clear and forceful writer, and his work contains many excellent descriptions of places and conditions that came under his observation" (Clark, Old South III, 48). Howes H-47; Sabin 29725. Without half-titles and ads, some foxing, bindings somewhat rubbed. Bookseller Inventory # 400572
