Condition: Very good


[Virginia: Luray Cave and Hotel Company and Shenandoah Valley Railroad, 1881]. First Separate Edition. Softcover. Very good. [4],13,[3] pp., including two-page map, three full-page engravings, and illustrated advertisement. Original printed wrappers. Neat five-inch separation of wrapper at spine, very light soiling to wrappers, else near fine.

An attractive advertisement for Virginia's Luray Caverns, evidently issued by the Luray Cave and Hotel Company and Shenandoah Valley Railroad for the 1882 tourist season. The pamphlet prints a detailed account of the wonders of the caves by an 1880 Smithsonian expedition, together with a railroad map of the eastern United States leading to Luray, with illustrations of the caverns and the Natural Bridge landmark. A full-page advertisement for the Luray Inn includes a large woodcut view of that institution. OCLC locates no copies. Rare.
