60 years on the upper Mississippi. My life and experiences
"Rock Island, IL": privately printed, 1893. "Rock Island, IL": privately printed. 1893. "First edition, 12mo, pp. [4], 300; original limp maroon cloth lettered in gilt on the upper cover; joints lightly rubbed, but generally near fine. Signed and dated (1901) by the author in pencil on the flyleaf. Despite the date of 1893 on the title-p., Howes notes that the introduction is dated 1895. The author moved to the upper Mississippi in 1832 and settled in Galena, IL, frequently traveling up and down the river between St. Paul and other points on the Mississippi. While a large portion of the book is devoted to persons and events in the Civil War, there is much information on Galena, Rock Island, and Minneapolis, including prominent citizens and important events. There is also a 12-p. section on Mormonism in Illinois. Contained in a recent brown morocco clamshell box, lettered in gilt on spine. Not at all common: only 2 copies (University of Minnesota and Tulane) in OCLC, to which we can add the copy at MHS. Howes M-169; Graff 2642; not in Flake, or Flake supplement."
