First Edition. Hardcover. Fair. Item #003617
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1871. First Edition. Green cloth-covered boards with gilt lettering and ornament; 577p. Maps and illustrations throughout, with pull-out map and adverts at back. Rebacked with most of the original cloth retained. Pages 30-84 all separating from binding, with pages prior likely to follow suit. Pages after seem secure at the moment. Tape repair to a few initial and terminal pages, with a number throughout showing small tears and chips at fore-edge not involving text. Small "Library of the Louise Home" stamp on title, but no other markings. Plates and maps are clean and crisp. Copy is flawed but complete. [Nevins II-47].
