Edición: 1st Edition
12mo. Red buckram with gilt spine lettering. xvii, 447p, (8pp ads). Very good. A tight and nice first edition of this first important history of the state, rebound (1968) in library buckram. Noted for its coverage of such events as the Black Hawk War, the early Mormon history (including the death of Joseph Smith) and the murder of abolitionist Elijah Lovejoy in Alton, this discreet ex-library copy (with very few and mostly-removed markings) hails from the Black Hawk War city of Galena in northwest Illinois, where Ford himself briefly resided. Byrd notes that some copies contain six pages of advertisements at the rear and some eight, but suggests no priority. BRADFORD 1337. BYRD 2105. GRAFF 1380. HOWES F254. SABIN 25070.
