The American Gazetteer, by Jedidiah Morse.

c. 700 pages. Text in English. Only two maps remain (of six)- South America and the Caribbean.
Period full leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands, gilt title lettering faded. Binding remains tight and sound although there is extensive toning, age spotting, some scattered staining, etc.
