About This Item

Gov't Printing Office, Washington DC, 1900. G, large 8vo HB, due to bumped and rubbed cover and early splitting of front interior binding. The book is still reasonably tight (no DJ) and the interior caontents are very good; the 5 maps (4 folding, 3 double page-- Territorial Growth of the Uni ted States, Map by Franquelin in 1684, Moll's map 1710, Map of Alaska, Map of Hawaiian Islands) are all in excellent condition, three of which are colored. All 7 b&w portraits (Thomas Jefferson in 1803, Barbe Marbois, Robert R. Livingston, President Monroe, William H. Seward, President Polk, Thomas H. Benton) are also in excellent condition. This is a very interesting book..

About The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books

The Prime Meridian: Antique Maps & Books is owned and operated by Joel & Deborah Kovarsky. We first opened in 1998, but have had a decades-old interest in old maps, books, and paper, stemming from a comparable long-standing interest in how knowledge is used. Our business is run via the internet. We do not run an open shop, however we do welcome visitors by appointment only. Before attempting a visit, please contact us. We are a specialty business, dealing in antiquarian maps and related books (atlases, history of cartography, selected reference books, etc.). Please feel free to contact us for specific inquiries.
