The Seat of Empire.

Boston: Fields, Osgood & Co., 1870. vii, 232, [11-advts], large folding map. Slight wear to extremities and fading to spine, front hinge reinforced, else very good. A promotional for land in the northwest thinly disguised as a first person travelogue. Coffin describes mostly the riches of Minnesota and Dakota but there are a couple of chapters on Montana and the Pacific slope. The large folding map (15 x 41 inches) could easily hold its own in the map section, but clearly belongs with the book. It shows southern Canada and the northern U.S. from Atlantic to Pacific. The route of the Northern Pacific RR is clearly marked crossing the continent, and the large size allows much detail. Boundaries are hand colored. Several repairs to separations on folds, but complete and bright. Item #4230

Price: $150.00
