40; 25-88 pages; Bound (or rebound) in plain, undecorated brown morocco leather. Normal copies of this work are issued with two distinct parts. This copy has the general title page from Appleton, dated 1869 and the dedication leaf (to Marshall O. Roberts), and lacks all the rest of the first part -- [the articles and grants of land from the Mexican government to a Company to be formed by Dn Emilio La-Sere, to open inter-oceanic communications across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec]. Past those first two leaves, this copy has the comlete second part of the work: the detailed historical and geographical account of the region from 1453-1869 by Henry Stevens. The two folding maps which appear in the first part are also lacking in this copy, but all the plates issued with the second part are present here: a frontispiece for Henry Stevens account with vignettes from old illustrations, and 10 full page tan and brown tinted lithographic plates of the region. The outer margins of the plates and several other leaves have stains in the outer margins (only). The endpapers and several text leaves also have more or less intense stains of this sort.
