STATISTICS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, INCLUDING A - AMERICANA] Robert Mills - 1826. 
Charleston, S.C.: Hurlbut and Lloyd, 1826. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. Howes M 627; Sabin 49118. From the period in Mill's career when he was the commissioner of the Board of Public Works in South Carolina and the superintendant of public building, before he won the competition for the design of the Washington Monument. This copy with the very fragile -- and uncommon -- handcolored folding map of "Sth. Carolina" which has some toning, but no tears. Howes notes that the map is "not in all copies [Howes M 627]. And Sabin notes that Statistics "is, in fact, a history of every thing connected with the State of South Carolina, of general or local interest" [Sabin 49188]. In publisher's boards; rebacked with a sympathetic new spine, preserving the original orange publisher's label. With half-title, map, folding "Statistical Table of the Several Districts" and errata as issued. The front flyleaf is clipped at the bottom corner. With foxing and toning throughout. Very Good binding.
