About this Item

Boston, octavo, vi, [2], 316 p. A Very Good copy in original full leather. The covers and backstrip are edgeworn, joints and hinges tender but holding; original red leather spine label chipped, but most of gilt lettering preserved. Binding firm. Save for some marginal toning (due to the cover leather) to the endpapers and title page, the text pages are near pristine: fresh, bright and clean. Contemporary signature of Lewis B. Hardcastle on the front pastedown, and inked number on opposite endpaper, but no other ownership evidence. This is a very serviceable copy of a highly significant early treatise on American mineral occurrences. Ward and Carozzi 1889. BMNH 1714. Bookseller Inventory # OG5019
