Edición: 1st Edition
Small 4to. Full calf with black lettering and borders. 174pp. Good plus. Scuffed and edgeworn, with chip at lead of spine and with occasional text pages edgeworn; internally very good. New endpapers. Tight and decent copy of this major revision of the ordinances of this early and influential northwest Illinois city, adopted hometown of U.S. Grant and briefly the lead mining capital of the world ("Galena" being Latin for "lead") that was supposed to be the great hub of the Midwest until Chicago's natural topographic advantage eclipsed it. Part I ("General Ordinances") spells out the nuts and bolts of this city government in great detail, including designating on page 76 the appearance of the official city seal ("a representation of a steamboat in the interior circle, with the words 'Seal of the City of Galena, Ills.,' in the exterior circle") and an actual impression of that blind-embossed circular seal on the page following. This section concludes on page 101 with a "Certificate" noting the acceptance of these revised ordinances by the city council; city clerk John B. French then signs boldly in ink, completing the partially-printed date of 1897 by adding June 29 and impressing the circular blind-embossed city seal once again. Part II ("Special Laws and Ordinances") completes the volume. Printed in a very modest quantity, this volume is rarely encountered. N° de ref. de la librería 38337
