Description:
New York: M J Ivers & C0., 1891 Paper back book bound in dark and light blue and white, Ivers' American Series # 253. Cover states published on July 24th, 1891 and as such this copy predates the first English edition by three months. This copy with 334 pp and text of last page being identical to the first edition. Green and Gibson in their bibliography note this pirated edition and date but their comment on this date it on July 25, not the 24th as on the cover. Their hypothesis is that only the covers were dated as such to escape the new copyright laws. This copy with both covers chipped and the rear being detached. Pages are tanned but supple. Covers rather frail. An interesting dilemma, is this, a pirate, the true first? Could it be unique?

Description:
New York : Pratt, Robinson, and Co., 1838 Bound in blue cloth with paper spine label, an exceptionally rare copy of a rare emigrant guide in that this has its original blue stiff wrap covers, titled "Sketches of the Upper Wabash Valley" bound in. The original map with its hand colored outlines and published by Augustus Mitchell is present and in fine condition. It does have a small closed tear near where it is attached to the book. The two plates are sharp and clean with the Page's Banking and Ditching machine with a few light fox spots. Light foxing to the end papers. Blue hardcover binding unevenly faded with its paper spine label chipped. An exceptional copy, especially with its original covers. This must be a larger version of this guide as the leaf measures 8 13/16" while another copy I have measures 7 3/4". In hardcover binding this copy measures 9 1/16". Truly a rare item with the last copy to sell at auction was in 1999.
