Matching Set of Jedidiah Morse's First Gazetteers - 2 Volumes
Boston: S. Hall and Thomas & Andrews; Samuel Etheridge, 1797. Nice set of the first editions of Morse's Gazetteers. Vol. 1, The American Gazetteer . . . Of the American Continent was printed in Boston by Hall, Thomas, and Andrews in 1797. Vol. 2, A New Gazetteer of the Eastern Continent . . . was printed in Boston by Etheridge in 1802. Both volumes are complete with all maps in their original leather covers. Vol. 1 has seven maps (six folding). Vol. 2 has 17 folding maps (the title page mistakenly calls for 18, but the instruction to the binder specifies only 17, all by title). Sound bindings; front hinge of Vol. 1 has been neatly mended. Clean pages. All 24 maps are complete but one; the "Map of the Northern Part of the United States" is missing a 1" x 2" rectangle at the bottom of the inside edge (likely removed during binding). Some of the maps have minor toning and wear to the edges. The margins of several have been trimmed close to the frame-lines. The covers have some wear; the original red and gilt spine labels are in good shape. Overall, very nice. Very hard-to-find as a matched set.. First Edition. Leather. Very Good -. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
