About This Item

This is a scarce, early copy of "Taintor's Route and City Guides" - this particular issue is for the "NORWICH LINE - New York to Boston and the White Mountains, Via New London, Norwich, Worcester, Lake Winnipiseogee (now "Winnipesaukee"), Plymouth, or Littleton." Published in 1868 by Taintor Brothers in New York. With attached large (8-panel) fold-out "Map of The Route to the White Mountains" in color. The guide contains illustrated advertisements at both the front and back. The guide includes "descriptive sketches of the cities, villages, stations, and scenes and objects of interest along the route."

Condition:
Stain spots to the covers (the stain at the top-left corner of the back cover also has a hole through it); the back cover has some light pencil writing; paper cover missing from the top and bottom edges of the spine; the front cover has a 1.5" tear at the bottom near spine. No loose pages. The map is securely attached at the spine and folds nicely in and out. The map had torn vertically (and was separated) and was repaired on the back-side using what appears to be a piece of tissue paper placed over the segments and pasted down. The last 4 pages of ads have "burn"/stain spots (that correspond with the spots on the back cover) that get gradually lighter and smaller until they disappear. Other than these last 4 pages, the inside is very clean with no other stains, tears or writing.
