Appletons' General Guide to the United States and Canada... Part II, Western and Southern States.

New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1883. xiv, 265-502pp, illus, 8 folding maps bound in, folding map in rear pocket, errata slip, plus unpaginated advertising front and back. Original printed boards, some soil to edges, else very good. A detailed guide to the places and routes along America's railroads; although, the railroad map of the United States in the back pocket clearly shows that the south and west are relatively under served compared to the north and east. Only one transcontinental route is shown on the map, but the text makes reference to the recently completed Texas Pacific route. There is much of interest, including a grand tour to the Rocky Mountains on the Union Pacific for $38 round trip. Item #21205
