About This Item

Philadelphia: Henry T. Coates, 1897. First Edition. Bright red cloth over boards with titling in gilt on the spine with spine and cover having a near east decorative pattern also in gilt. Fine/near fine. 7.87" x 5.25", pp. [1] vii, 3-253, [2] 3-226 with fold-out map following last page, with B&W photographic illustrations, gilt top edge and red silk bookmark. The illustrations have tissue guards with photo titling in red opposite the picture. Vol I has a gift inscription on ffe of Vol 1. This book is from the Gloria Grace Griffen American West Collection at the Univ. of Nevada Reno as identified by attractive bookplate affixed to FE. Griffen was a historian of the Great Basin and professor / lecturer at multiple noted universities. She contributed five biographies and many well researched papers to the anthology of Western American history. Otherwise this is a very nice set with bright red vinyl DJs having only the slightest of wear at the top and bottom of spine and a few corners. Beautiful books telling the tale of a beautiful country. "Consciousness of power, superstition, lust, kiff, sloth and an utter weariness of everything in the world were stamped upon his features. A large white turban concealed his forehead and ears, and at this side hung a curved dagger." (p 166).
