Descripción

Full publisher's calf with leather spine label. 8vo. 458pp. Illustrated. One of the earliest accounts of the 1871 Chicago fire written by two Chicago journalists in the winter of 1871. It includes a detailed history of Chicago, a description of the fire and its destruction, stories of individuals' actions during the fire, and descriptions of historical major fires including forest fires in Wisconsin and Michigan. The book is illustrated with numerous post-fire engravings of many of the buildings shown in Sheahan's 1866-67 work "Chicago Illustrated". There are two folding maps of Chicago showing the location and boundary of the fire and the location of prominent buildings burned. This copy is in the very uncommon publisher's deluxe full calf binding. A very good copy with some scuffing to the spine tips and cover edges. The text is very good with some scattered foxing and spotting. The plates and maps are in very nice condition with no chips or tears. N° de ref. de la librería 7690
