Título: 1858-9. Galena City Directory, Containing ...
Editorial: W.W. Huntington, Galena, IL
Año de publicación: 1858
Edición: 1st Edition
16mo. Modern brown cloth tape spine and original salmon printed paper over boards. 139pp. Tables, advertisements. Good only. Original printed boards quite edgeworn and rounded and age toned and scuffed -- but overall decently tight and handleable nonetheless; contemporary lightly pencilled ownership signatures on front and rear flyleaves. A super early and scarce city directory for this northwest Illinois city that was meant to be the great hub of the Midwest in its day and provided much of the lead ("galena" being Latin for lead) briefly in the 1840s, also the adopted hometown of U.S. Grant. Internally very good, with occasional foxing but otherwise clean and nice. "Historical Sketch of the Upper Mississippi, Galena and the Lead Trade" at the conclusion. City directories of this vintage and in this acceptable condition are extremely uncommon. Not in Byrd. N° de ref. de la librería 40438
