History of Nevada with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of its Prominent Men and Pioneers.

Oakland: Thompson & West, 1881. 680pp, illus. Rebound in quarter leather, it appears that the rebinder attempted to stain the edges, the effect being uneven with slight bleeding, one page with an old tape repair, another with a couple of places of lost paper not effecting the text, overall a very good copy. Stanley Paher says, "This classic work is the most used and quoted history of any ever issued of the state. It is likely to remain forever the all time Nevada book, for nothing issued since compares to its exhaustive coverage. There is very little worth knowing about Nevada before 1881 that cannot be found in this first statewide Nevada history" Not much I can add to that other than to point out the many engraved portraits of prominent Nevadans and lithographic views of buildings, farms and scenes throughout the state.
