Hartford, Conn.: American Publishing Company, 1867. First edition. Hardcover. Good. Waud, Warren, White et al. A fascinating book that provides an insight into America as it was between 1857 and 1867 as the western frontier was being explored. With over 200 engravings, including many plates and a two page map, that really bring the narrative to light. As introduced by the author: "I have sought to picture a fleeting phase of our national life; not omitting its grotesque, lawless features; not concealing my admiration for the adventurous pioneers who have founded great States from the Mississippi t the Pacific, and made a new geography for the American Union." 22.5x15.5 cm. 572 pp. This volume has been re-bound with the original red cloth covers and backstrip [with gilt lettering] having been re-laid over the new binding. Edges and corners worn. New endpapers. Contents clean and commensurate with age. This is a heavy book [1.3 kg] and will require extra postage for international shipping. from Otto
