North America.

London: Edward Stanford, 1883. 652pp, illus, maps (11 folding). Original decorative boards. Spine slightly faded, gilt on front board still bright, previous owner's bookplate and gift insc, overall very good. This is a survey of geography and culture based on a German work. The section on the United States (pp1-285) was "edited and enlarged" by Hayden. Much on geology - naturally - with chapters on history, politics, and Indians and more. The rest of the book by Selwyn deals with Canada. Apparently, the editors did not consider Mexico a part of North America. Item #24623

Price: $250.00
