1863. Hardcover. Very good in the original dark green publisher's cloth with gilt title to spine and gilt emblem to front cover. Chipping to book cloth along the spine ends and hinges. Both hinges are starting to split with cracks starting on the tops and bottoms of both. Minor wear to corners and edges of boards. With numerous illustrations including a large fold out Nicholls map of New York (1664-8), a fold out of the Steam Ship Roanoke, a color fold out view of Harlem (1765), several color plates of New York homes, and more. A few of the fold outs have closed tears. Dampstaining to bottom and top corners of later pages. 852 pages. NY/022118. Very Good.
