Description

634pp. Octavo [26 cm] Green cloth with title (very faint) on backstrip. Large fold-out map present at the front. Good plus. The extremities are rubbed, the boards are a bit bowed, and the fore edge corners of the covers are gently bumped. The cloth at the spine ends is chipped with loss, and it is a bit frayed at the edges, occasionally exposing the underlying boards. There is a deep gouge in the surface of the backstrip which is 1/4" wide by 1/2" tall. There are multiple cracks in the endsheets along the hinges (the longest crack measuring 3 inches), and there is a small label from the Juvenile Instructor Publishing House on the front pastedown. The pages are tanned, and the pages at the end are a bit rippled. There is a 2" closed tear in the fold out chart at p. 300. The book is very sturdy.

Comments

A wealth of period advertisements throughout, some with great illustrations. One of the three original Sloan directories (1869, 1874,1884). Includes a 'Sketch of Mormonism' Flake/Draper 7761.
