        Constitution and By-Laws of the Mohawk Base Ball Club, of the City of Brooklyn, N.Y.

      New York: W. A. Clayton, Printer and Bookbinder, 105 Maiden Lane, 1867. Very Good. Presumed first edition. 16mo. Stitched sheets. [4], 12pp. Small errata slip laid in, correcting an omission to the fourth part of Article II, Section Four of the Constitution. Old tidelines along right margin, extending partly into the text, but all legible. Officers and committee members for the year 1867 are listed on an early page, and include A.C. Davis, President, E.W. Crittenden, First Vice President, Wm. Shipman, Second Vice President, and A.C. Smith, Third Vice President.The small pamphlet is accompanied by a manuscript letter, creased from folding, measuring 8.75" x 11" and composed of approximately 120 words, from C. W. Fancher of Wyckoff, N.J. dated in 1946. Fancher offers for sale a sepia picture of the Brooklyn Dodgers Base Ball Club and certificate of membership in the National Association of Base Ball Players dated Dec. 13, 1865 (not present here) to a Mrs. Blair, presumably Mrs. Natalie Knowlton Blair (1887-1951), a well-known collector of Americana. In addition he states: "I also have the little book of rules that goes with the picture," and on the verso he has sketched a pencil drawing of the title page, with an accompanying note, "The little book is in splendid condition and worth more than I ask for the picture."The constitution and by-laws laid out for the club included a list of fines for various offenses by club members, including "for rude, ungentlemanly, or discourteous language, manners or conduct at any meeting, game or reception of the Club, not more than one ($1.00) dollar for each offence." The designated "Nines" were to be prepared to play the games for which they were selected, and to be on time or face a fine. The team uniform was described as "a blue cap with the letter 'M' within a white star on top, a white jacket, and blue pants with white cord." The game of baseball increased in popularity in the 1850s, though it continued to be an 'amateur' sport for the next few years. According to Harold Seymour's Baseball: The Early Years, [NY: 1960], p.24: "Unquestionably, baseball was spreading rapidly in the New York area. In 1856 'Porter's Spirit of the Times' said that every available green plot within ten miles of the city was being used as a playing field. Brooklyn, already the 'city of churches,' was fast becoming the 'city of baseball clubs'... ." In 1867, the 10th Annual Convention of the National Association of Base Ball Players was held in Clinton, New York. Among the list of attendees were the Hon. A.C. Davis and A.C. Smith, of the Mohawk, Brooklyn.An article published in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in March 1917 gives some particulars on the history of the Mohawk Base Ball Club: "On the Mohawk Club the late William C. Hudson, formerly of The Brooklyn Eagle, alternately played shortstop and pitched.... Left to right: Abe Silleck, first base; Sam Delisser, shortstop; A. Steiner, left field; Jacob Steiner, right field; Eugene, captain; Kelly, pitcher; Wash Weeks, catcher; William Forker, second base; Chauncey Ryder, center field. F. O'Connor, third base.... In 1867 ... O'Connor [State Senator Eugene F. O'Connor] became captain of the Mohawk Club of Brooklyn, which made the famous first 'shut-out' on the Fourth of July, in that year, in a game with the Earnests of Riverhead. L. I., the score being 62 to 0, in nine innings. Not an error was made in this game." That article included an interview with O'Connor where he reminisced about the club saying: "We played baseball in those days for the glory of it. None of us got a dollar for our services. We even bought our own uniforms and combined to buy our bats and balls. In the good old days we were up at daybreak practicing the game out at our grounds on Carroll Park, or on Fifth Avenue, before we had our breakfast or before going to business. Our team never lost a day from work, playing on Saturdays and holidays only, and we averaged about twelve match games a season. The Mohawks were no mean club and contested with such crack teams as the Atlantics, the Mutuals, the Athletics and the Eckfords." Hudson, Silleck, Steiner, O'Connor and Forker all are listed in this pamphlet as members of the Mohawk Base Ball Club. The pamphlet's printer W.A. Clayton appears as both the treasurer and a member of the finance committee for the club.Rare. Not in Grobani. Guide to Baseball Literature. Not in Smith Baseball: A Comprehensive Bibliography.

      1867 - [4]-XIX-710-[2] pp., 8 pl. ; Paris, A. Delahaye, 1867, in-8, [4]-XIX-710-[2] pp, 8 pl. ; 32 pp. de catalogue éditeur in fine, pleine percaline verte de l'éditeur, Première édition française ; l'originale londonienne (The Nature and Treatment of Gout and Rheurmatic Gout) a paru en 1859. Ouvrage orné de 8 planches lithographiées, dont 5 en couleur, et de figures dans le texte. Garrod (1819-1907) fit incontestablement autorité dans le domaine de la goutte ; on lui doit d'avoir mis en évidence la présence de dépôts uratiques dans les articulations touchées par la goutte ; de fait, il permit la distinction entre cette maladie et les autres formes d'arthrites. Le présent ouvrage a été traduit en français par Auguste Ollivier et annoté par Jean-Martin Charcot qui avait publié, cette même année, ses fameuses Leçons sur les maladies des vieillards, dans lesquelles il traitait abondamment du rhumatisme et de la goutte. Ex-libris manuscrit de Henry Liouville, médecin, professeur à la faculté de Paris (1875), et estampille annulée de la faculté catholique de Paris. Les feuillets de l'explication des planches (pp. XVII à XIX) ont été reliés par erreur après la page de titre. Percaline un peu fatiguée ; bon exemplaire néanmoins. Norman, n° 874. Garrison & Morton, n° 4497 pour l'édition originale anglaise. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri (Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso)

      London: George Routledge & Sons, 1867. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. First British edition of Longfellow's translation, a complete set, duodecimo, 800 pp. (all three volumes). The Divine Comedy is often considered the masterpiece of Italian literature and one of the world's great classics. This set is the first British printing of Longfellow's translation of the poem, published very close to the first edition (Ticknor and Fields); according to the BAL, the text in Volume I may be earlier than the Boston printing. All three volumes are first printings, Volume I the first state with p. 118, note 116 reading "Di quegli antichi". Per Cynthia Haven's blog on the Stanford University web site: "one of the few truly successful English translations comes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a professor of Italian at Harvard and an acclaimed poet. He produced one of the first complete, and in many respects still the best, English translations of The Divine Comedy in 1867. It did not hurt that Longfellow had also experienced the kind of traumatic loss - the death of his young wife after her dress caught fire - that brought him closer to the melancholy spirit of Dante's writing, shaped by the lacerating exile from his beloved Florence in 1302. Longfellow succeeded in capturing the original brilliance of Dante's lines with a close, sometimes awkwardly literal translation that allows the Tuscan to shine through the English, as though this 'foreign' veneer were merely a protective layer added over the still-visible source". ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in dark green cloth, a gilt depiction of Dante on the front boards, gilt lettering and rules on the spines, light brown coated endpapers, arranged with the text first in each volume, followed by extensive notes and other matter, index at the end of Paradiso, gift inscription on the front free endpaper of Inferno in a flowing, vintage hand, vintage bookseller ticket (Robert Irvine, Kilmarnock) on the front pastedown of Inferno, prior owner name in pencil on the front pastedown of Paradiso; duodecimo size (approximately 7 5/8" by 5 1/8"), pagination: Volume I, [i-iii] iv-viii (lacking half-title), [1-3] 4-246, [i-ii, ads]; Volume II, [i-v] vi-viii, [247-249] 250-489, (490, blank) [i-iv, ads]; Volume III, [i-v] vi-viii, [491-493], 494-760, [i-x] ads. ***CONDITION: Overall the set is very good, with the bindings clean, all three volumes have strong, square text blocks with solid hinges, the interiors are very lightly toned and free of foxing, other than the gift inscription and prior owner name mentioned above, the set is free of prior owner markings. Inferno was acquired by us separately from the other two volumes, it shows some wear to the head and tail of the spine and the upper part of the front joint, and the leaf for pp. 123-124 was roughly opened, with some loss to the fore-edge margin (not affecting text); Purgatorio also has some wear to the head and tail of the spine, some rippling to the cloth on the front board (but no evidence of damp-stain), a small bump to the bottom edge of the front board and evidence of removal of a small plate on the rear pastedown; we had a professional restorer repair the front hinge and joint of Paradiso, and re-sew the signatures; all three volumes show slight rubbing to the corners. Even with their aggregate minor faults this set is overall very good, a solid, eminently respectable set of Longfellow's highly regarded translation. ***CITATION: BAL 12146. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

This run from the final 2 years of the American Civil War, includes numerous ads and announcements from the period, indicating deaths, weddings, and celebrations of all kinds, from across the UK, the British Empire, English Speaking Jewry and, indeed, the entire world. Anniversary dinners and events often list participants, which sometimes read like who's who's of Anglo-jewry of the period, and at other times mention names from the far reaches of the British Empire. Too many various reports, letters, discussions, and ads to describe, SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Great Britain -- Newspapers. First and final leaves show exposure wear, as expected, with corner curling to last 20 issues and edgewear generally not extending into the text.

        Rime di Francesco Petrarca con l'Interpretazione di Giacomo Leopardi

      Florence: Successori le Monnier, 1867. Nineteenth-century Florentine edition of Petrarch's poetry, presented by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to his daughter Edith to commemorate their shared love of Italian literature: "Before her marriage Edith Longfellow read Dante in the original with her father. This she carried out conscientiously for at least two years, enjoying the association with her father in his work, and he presented to her a volume of Petrarch inscribed in memory of those readings" (Cambridge Historical Society Publications XI, 55). Edith's penciled notes reflect a careful reading of Petrarch's text. She had just turned 23 when she received this book; next to the celebrated opening of the Canzoniere, when Petrarch invokes "mio primo giovenile errore" ("my first errant youthful days"), her pencil notation reads: "22 years old." A later note references Petrarch's reading of Dante, while another expands a reference to Boccaccio's Decameron. Tipped onto the final leaf is a card with five transcribed lines from Trionfo della Divinità concerning the death of Petrarch's Laura: "Beatissima lei che Morte ancise / Assai di qua dal natural Confine!" ("happiest is she death has snatched away / well before the natural bound of life"). In 1861, when Edith was seven years old, her mother Fanny accidentally set herself on fire and died of her burns. Longfellow found himself unable to write poetry after his wife's death, turning instead to his ambitious translation of Dante, a project which prepared the way for his Italian study with Edith and the gift of this volume. Text in Italian. A poignant family and literary association copy. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter brown sheep over marbled boards, borders ruled in gilt, raised bands double-ruled in gilt, spine compartments lettered and ornamented in gilt, mauve endpapers. Index at rear. Presentation inscription on second fly leaf: "Edith Longfellow / with her father's love. / January 30. 1876." Pencil notes throughout text, notecard tipped onto recto of final free endpaper with five lines of Petrarch written in ink. Light wear to binding, joints rubbed, offsetting and spotting to endpapers.

      [FINLEY,MARTHA]. ELSIE DINSMORE by Martha Farquharson. NY: M.W. Dodd 1867. 12mo (4 5/8 x 6 7/8"), 288p., light purple embossed cloth, gilt decorative spine, previous owner's attractive gilt and leather book plate, slight soil on 1 page, a Fine copy in a custom leather backed box. 1st edition of the first book about Elsie Dinsmore whose series eventually ran up to 28 volumes. Despite some religious overtones and suggestions about the father's impropiety, the Elsie Dinsmore series became immensely popular. It is suggested that Elsie's longevity and success inspired Edward Stratemeyer to create his long living series including Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and many others. In selecting this title for Peter Parley to Penrod, a bibliography of the best children's books, the bibliographer Jacob Blanck notes that he had seen only 2 copies of the first edition (p.26). Today it is rare, and outstanding copies like this can't be found.

"Francis formulated the case for the dry fly more sensibly than it was to be stated again for the next forty years, saying "Now, there are two ways of fly-fishing, viz, with the dry fly and with the wet fly. Some fishermen always use one plan, others almost as pertinaciously use the other. To use either of them invariably is wrong. Sometimes the one will be found to kill fast and sometimes the other. I fine waters, particularly in the southern countries, where fly-fishing is certainly more of a systematic art than is in the north, the dry fly is greatly used, and with very deadly effect at times. In very calm, bright and still weather, when a wet fly will often be useless, the dry fly will be taken most confidingly. In rough windy weather the wet fly preferable,." - Gingrich.

        Melbourne Wine Merchants Price List, printed for the Paris Universal Exhibition

      London: Grant & Co, 1867. Ephemera. Very good condition. A lavishly gilt embellished wine list produced by the first large scale catering business in the world, Spiers & Pond, which was founded in Melbourne and which sponsored the first cricket test match in Australia. Felix Spiers (1832 - 1911) and Christopher Pond (1826 - 1881), two British emigrants attracted by the gold rush, were involved in a wide range of successful undertakings in Melbourne: they founded restaurants, were organizers of the first balloon flight in the country, and were the first commercial sponsors of cricket in Australia. In 1861 they sponsored the first ever tour of an English national cricket team, an event which is seen as igniting the Australian passion for the game. This project was undertaken following an unsuccessful bid to Charles Dickens for a lecture tour of Australia. The tour was named 'The Eleven of All England'. The first game was played in early 1862 and was a great financial success for Spiers & Pond. The partners returned to London in 1863 where they began a catering business for railway passengers. Spiers & Pond established concessions at several Metropolitan Railway stations and won contracts for restaurants at railway stations throughout the city. They eventually held food contracts for all the major railway lines, and managed 21 bars, which allowed them to claim to be the first to popularize low cost wine in Britain. They ran hotels and restaurants including the Gaiety restaurant and the Criterion. This wine price list is a 3 fold card with much gold gilt decoration and ornate typography on one side, the text printed in red, green and blue. The text at the front cover of the card reads, "Spiers & Pond [of] London, Paris & Birmingham, formerly of Australia. Wine Merchants, Refreshment Contractors. Contractors in England to the London, Chatham Dover Railway, Metropolitan System of Railways, Royal Italian Opera Covent Garden, and the Royal Horticultural Gardens. Proprietors of the Exchange Tavern & Restaurant Birmingham, Hall by the Sea Margate. Central offices in London, 38 Bridge Street". The b&w wine list is printed on the verso. The middle panel includes an Australian sparkling wine under "Moselles & Hocks". 9 3/4 x 4 3/4"

        A Superb Collection of Photographs of Italy

      Alinari 1867 - A superb set of monumental early photographs of Italy by Fratelli Alinari of Florence, the world&#146;s oldest photography firm. Large folio (20 x 25 in.). Two volumes. Contemporary quarter calf. 134 albumen prints, mounted on heavy paper, each with manuscript caption. Various sizes, from 16½ x 21½ in. mammoth prints to several 3 x 4 in. prints. Some foxing, almost exclusively limited to margins of mounting paper. Some wear to binding, but a very handsome volume, with the photographs generally in fine condition. Magnificent photographs from masters of the genre. Fratelli Alinari, founded in Florence in 1852, is the world&#146;s oldest photography firm. The three Alinari brothers pioneered the use of the camera for reproducing artwork and architecture from the great Italian galleries for public consumption. They are also known for their advocacy of the photographic portrait and for their photographs of Italian buildings and monuments. &#147;The Alinaris were called to all the most important exhibits of the age. The Alinari images played a fundamental role in the perception and knowledge of the Italian work of art&#148; (Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography). In these two volumes, the Alinaris have focused on the architecture of the great cities of Italy. They capture the neoclassical elements of building façades and interiors as well as other city structures with exquisite detail and precision. They approach each subject from a unique perspective chosen to capture and draw attention to its most intriguing features &#150; from the monumental Duomo and Campanile (dome and belltower) in Florence, to the balustrades of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, to the arches and columns of a cathedral doorway in Verona. Volume I is devoted to Venice, including the Palais Ducal, St. Mark&#146;s Place, and the Grand Canal. Volume II contains images of Florence, Pisa, Bologne, Padua, and Verona, including landscapes, architectural views, and occasional reproductions of famous works of art. These two volumes present an opportunity to acquire superb, early large-format images of Italy&#146;s most famous buildings and settings in extraordinary high-quality prints by the most famous photographer in the field.

        Das Kapital.

      Hamburg: Otto Meissner,, 1867. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Erster Band. Buch I: Der Produktionsprocess des Kapitals. Octavo (215 x 135 mm). Contemporary diced half roan, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, black pebbled cloth boards, brown endpapers, marbled edges. Custom yellow and black marbled slipcase. Ownership inscription to title page. Corners lightly worn and bruised, some splitting to front joint, overall a bright, clean copy. Rare first edition of the first volume of Das Kapital, the only one to appear in Marx's lifetime; one of 1,000 copies printed. Two further volumes were published from his manuscripts by Engels, in 1885 and 1894 respectively. The first volume of Das Kapital was published on 14 September 1867 in Hamburg, issued in printed wrappers. "Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik de politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. The Athenaeum reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm'. The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx (a chronic furunculosis victim) wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives' …" "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of Das Kapital to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written 'few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it'. He was wrong: the edition sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F. A. Sorge that 'our success is still greater in Russia, where Kapital is read and appreciated more than anywhere else'" (PMM). "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro—the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognise them as such is quite another matter … Nevertheless, within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature. Not since Jesus Christ has an obscure pauper inspired such global devotion—or been so calamitously misinterpreted" (Francis Wheen, in his introduction to Karl Marx, 1999).

        Madagascar Revisited,

      London: John Murray,, 1867. Describing the Events of a New Reign and the Revolution which followed; setting forth also the Persecutions endured by the Christians, and their Heroic Sufferings, with Notices of the Present State and Prospects of the People. Large octavo. Original brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine, blind panels to boards enclosing ox vignette to front, green coated endpapers. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Engraved frontispiece with tissue guard, 12 plates, folding map of Antananarivo. Contemporary ownership signature (R. M. Fitzgerald, dated 1867) to head of title. Scattered light cockling to cloth. An exceptionally bright copy. First and only edition, a superlative copy from the celebrated travel collection of Franklin Brooke-Hitching, with his pencilled initials to the half-title. Ellis (1794-1872) joined the London Missionary Society in 1814 and worked in Tahiti and Hawaii before his attention turned to Madagascar following Queen Ranavalona's suppression of Christianity there in 1835. He visited the island several times and published an important account of his travels, Three Visits to Madagascar, in 1858. "Following Queen Ranavalona's death in 1861 the passionately pro-European new king, Radama II, granted liberty of conscience to all his subjects … [and] Ellis readily agreed to oversee the rehabilitation of LMS missions on the island. Reaching the capital in May 1862 he fearlessly—perhaps rashly—plunged into the court intrigues which swirled around the new monarch … Just as Ellis thought he might be on the brink of converting the king to the Christian faith, Radama was attacked and apparently killed by his own troops. French Catholic missionaries believed Ellis had plotted to bring about the coup and the report was relayed to London … Not long after Radama's widow was installed as queen, the capital was shaken by the rumour that the king had survived the attempted assassination and was hiding in the countryside … Ellis was drawn into an attempt to make contact with the king, an act which laid him open to further charges of political meddling. At this point he sagely withdrew from court circles, content to accept … the repeal of all anti-Christian decrees. Ellis's public account of his mission, Madagascar Revisited (1867), led to his election as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a busy life as a lecturer" (ODNB).

      4 Nov. 1867, Rochester - A letter of @90 words to Frederick W. Gunster on a 5" x 8" sheet of lined paper accomplished in another hand but SIGNED in full by Douglass. In full: "Your favor of the 30th of Oct. has reached me. Absence from home is my apology for delay. You give me the choice of any evening between the 20th and 30th of Nov. inclusive. The best I can do is to give you Monday evening the 25th of Nov. Regarding the limits set for me as final I have placed Scranton on my list for that evening." Throughout 1867 Douglass canvassed New England, the Midwest, and the mid-Atlantic states in a grueling campaign to muster white voter support against the Andrew Johnson administration's sluggish attempts at black enfranchisement. On the 25th and 26th of November, Douglass was Gunster's guest, reportedly telling Scrantonites in no uncertain terms that there was little advantage in emancipation under Andrew Johnson. Whether black Americans would continue to bear the inherent burdens of citizenship without impartial suffrage would be decided at the polls the following November when Ulysses S. Grant, carrying 26 states to opponent Horatio Seymour's 8, privately sighed, "I am afraid I am elected." Normal creases from folding; slight foxing. Near Fine [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Vocabulary of Dialects Spoken by Aboriginal Natives of Australia

      Masterman, Printer, Melbourne 1867 - Octavo, xiv pp. and six very large folding tables; stitch-sewn in the original printed yellow wrappers, Very rare: notes on the Aboriginal dialects of Australia, compiled in the form of comparative tables. Most of the tribes noticed here are Victorian, but there are also notes on the languages of South Australia, Tasmania and New Caledonia.The preface by Sir Remond Barry comments on his hopes that the impending Intercolonial Exhibition will encourage the collection of Aboriginal implements: he is particularly taken with the idea of collecting what he quaintly refers to as 'authentic accounts upon which reliance may be placed touching their ideas with regard to the Supreme Being.' The text also includes Sir John Herschel's suggestions regarding a standard orthography when 'compiling vocabularies from the mouths of natives', derived from the Admiralty Manual.Barry was the President of Commissioners for the Intercolonial Exhibition, and while he worked tirelessly to organise and promote the event, he mysteriously withdrew from office before the formal opening. Perhaps this withdrawal helps explain why the present work does not appear to have been widely distributed at the time: indeed, a printer's gap in Barry's text strongly suggests that this was in some sense a preliminary issue, and the work does not appear to have been formally published. Copies with pink wrappers are also known. Slight creasing and foxing to wrappers but an excellent copy in original condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Despite some religious overtones and suggestions about the father's impropiety, the Elsie Dinsmore series became immensely popular. It is suggested that Elsie's longevity and success inspired Edward Stratemeyer to create his long living series including Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and many others. In selecting this title for Peter Parley to Penrod, a bibliography of the best children's books, the bibliographer Jacob Blanck notes that he had seen only 2 copies of the first edition (p.26).

      Milano: Tito di Gio. Ricordi [PNs 40551-40588], 1867. First Complete Italian Edition of the first version of the opera. Hopkinson 61A(f). Chusid p. 50. Don Carlos, to a libretto by Joseph Méry and Camille du Locle after Friedrich von Schiller's dramatic poem Don Carlos Infant von Spanien, was first performed in Paris at the Opéra on March 11, 1867. "Don Carlos has of late become one of the best-loved and most respected of Verdi's operas... Verdi dedicated to the work some of his greatest dramatic music. One need think only of the magnificent series of confrontational duets that form such a great part of the drama... several of these break decisively with traditional models, forging for themselves a vital new relationship between musical and dramatic progress. It is for such moments that Don Carlos will be remembered and treasured." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.. Folio.

      St. Paul: J.S. Sewall, [copyrighted 1857, but ca. 1867]. - Folding color map, 32 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. Folding into original 16mo. cloth covers, stamped in blind and gilt. Covers edgeworn, cloth faded. Minor separations at cross-folds. Very good. The Thomas W. Streeter copy of a rare early map of Minnesota. Like other Minnesota maps of this period, the present map is most valuable for showing nascent development along the northern shore of Lake Superior. Much of northern Minnesota appears sparsely-occupied. The coloring is restrained and quite lovely in this copy. "A beautiful map, showing the country in great detail" - Eberstadt. The map was engraved by C.A. Swett of Boston, and published by Sewall in St. Paul. It was apparently available from agents for quite some time after its initial 1857 publication date; the front pastedown of this copy bears an ad for agents D.D. Merrill, Randall & Co., dated St. Paul July 1, 1867, noting that it is available for $1.25. This issue of the map was apparently updated some time after 1862, as it shows that the name of Toombs County (named after Georgia Congressman and future Confederate General Robert Toombs) has been changed to Andy Johnson County, named after Andrew Johnson. The county name was changed yet again, after Johnson's impeachment in 1868, to Wilkin County. STREETER SALE 3928 (this copy). CHECKLIST OF THE PRINTED MAPS OF THE MIDDLE WEST (MINNESOTA) 0715.
