About this Item: Iowa Publishing Company, Davenport, 1906. Hardcover. Condition: Poor. First Edition. Original gilt-stamped large folio ½ leather & cloth over boards. 15¿ x 18.5¿. Now, let¿s get this disclaimer out of the way. Buyer will not be acquiring this copy because of the condition ¿ the binding is in dreadful condition ¿ but for content and the rarity thereof. More on condition below. 165pp. Maps (all shaded in color). Portraits. Contents: Decoratively printed title page; Publishers¿ Preface (1p), Table of Contents page (listing Townships, Cities, Towns and Villages, Miscellaneous Maps -- State of Iowa, U.S., the World, Rural Route Map of Washington Co, The System of the United States Land Surveys, Topographical Map of Washington County --, Portraits, Miscellaneous (-- these are located in various places in the book --- Advertisements, Farmer¿s Directory of Washington Co, History of the State of Iowa, History of Washington Co, Preface, Reminiscences of Early Settlers, Road Laws of Iowa, Views of Washington Co). I count 37 maps: 1 Topographical of county, 1 state, 1 U.S., 1 world, 2 City of Washington (northern side & southern side), 1 of Principal Meridians & Base Lines of U.S., and the rest are township maps. Of the city & township maps, 6 are double page & three page/plates have 3 maps each. I think my count is accurate but don¿t hold my feet to the fire if I missed one or over-counted slightly. There are 12pp of Farmers Directory alphabetical list with route number. There are 18pp of ads, many of them with black & white half-tones. There are 29pp of half-tone portraits (around 26 per page), some of them deceased citizens. There are 13pp of history & reminiscences. Back to binding: Corners worn with much leather worn away exposing boards. Binding is broken. Joints are broken but covers still reasonably firmly attached. Several leaves are badly margin chipped, but with only loss of text on bottom edge of last leaf of portraits (1/2 of one barn is missing). Title page fore edge chipped back 1 ¿ 2 inches (no loss of decorative material or text). There are various edge tears. One leaf with ads on both side is torn all the way across, and a previous owner mended it with tape. And finally, pp87 & following are cracked along the binding with most split along the inner margin, mostly outside of text. The reason why this inner margin has taken place is largely because the publishers chose to make the book a stapled binding inside the boards ¿ a sure-fire way to eventually cause the paper to break. This represents a serious restoration job for the book preservationist, but all but the slightest bit of textual and pictorial information is present. This copy apparently at one time to a resident of Franklin Township as his name has been underlined and later highlighted in the directory portion. Someone also identified his portrait.There are a couple of other highlights & old marks. Rare. Less than a handful of copies in libraries worldwide. Seller Inventory # 1302066

About this Item: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr., Philadelphia, 1867. Folio. (15 3/8 x 12 1/4 inches). 54 hand-coloured lithographic maps and town plans (the first map printed with an additional table of the world time zones on verso, five double-page), numbered 1-91 (i.e. including numbering of the insets and with the plan of St. Louis unnumbered). Publisher's red half morocco and red cloth-covered boards, the upper cover decoratively blocked in gilt, the lower cover blocked in blind, rear endpaper torn A fine, complete copy of Mitchell's important New General Atlas. S. Augustus Mitchell retired in 1860 leaving the business to his son S. Augustus Mitchell Jr. In the same year Mitchell Jr. published the first edition of the present work, issued to replace the New Universal Atlas. The work was evidently a success: a second edition followed in 1861, a third in 1862 and the atlas continued to be issued annually until 1887. As with its predecessor, the General Atlas concentrates on the Americas, this edition includes 35 maps of the area, including a fine double-page east-to-west-coast of the United States, the individual states are delineated on 21 maps and there are city plans of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, New Orleans, Cincinnati, Chicago and St.Louis. The text also is also heavily weighted in the same direction as the maps: pp.[1-]23 'List of Post Offices in the United States', [24]-25pp. 'Population of the United States', [26]-27pp. 'List of Post Offices in the Canadas', [1p.] 'Table of Population, Governments, &c.', [1p.] 'Table of Distances'; [1p.] 'Mountains of the World', [1p.] 'Rivers of the World'.
