A Practical System of Modern Geography or a View of the Present State of the World, by J. Olney.
Published 1841, New York by Robinson, Pratt & Co.
288 pages. Text in English. Engraved frontis & title page. Illustrated throughout with many small woodcut images. No maps within these books (as issued).

Period 1/4 leather binding, illustrated paper cover paste downs.

Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.

Bindings both heavily age worn, paper covers well worn, scuffed and abraded with loss of readability. Both books have clearly been heavily used as intended by students in the past.

Text block paper is toned, moderate to heavy scattered age spotting and staining, some edge tears, curled corners, some early owners hand coloring in one, etc. Books are in poor physical condition but still readily enjoyed by browsing the contents which provide a fascinating snapshot into the mind set of the era.

Still attractive on the shelf. Books display a pleasing and unique age patina. 

Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique lot survives.

Book Measures c. 6 1/2" H x 4" W.
