Tertiary History of the Grand Canon District, Monograph Only
Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 1882 - United States Government Printing Office, Monograph only. 3/4" dark green leather binding over green pebbled boards. Front board detached. Ex-library copy. Interior is clean and free of markings save a few library markings. Tight binding; marbled endpapers (1" x 1/2" chip missing from front endpaper) and edges. This copy was used by Wallace Stegner in his research for "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian", although there is no indication within; no marginalia or owners signature. "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian" was unlike any of Stegner's previous works, requiring research spanning 5 years. Stegner often consulted with his mentor Bernard DeVoto during the writing. At one point Stegner writes to DeVoto, "I really am scared to death to let anybody see this, for some reason. Maybe I know the thing stinks." The writing of Hundredth Meridian would solidify Stegner's growing environmentalism and the book remains a classic of the history of the west. Book was acquired directly from the Stegner family. ; Book; 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall; 264 pp [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
