Atlas of the City of Trenton and Borough of Princeton, Mercer County, New Jersey.
Published 1905, Philadelphia by A.H. Mueller & Co.
24 double page map plates. Text in English. Complete with 24 hand colored maps, each showing property owners, building materials, lot sizes, and building shapes.
Monumental antiquarian 1/2 leather binding, smooth spine, gilt title lettering, cloth covers.
Atlas is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Covers loosened as typical for large folio atlas bindings of this size and era.
Binding well age worn but still appealing, leather and joints scuffed, worn down, spine leather perished/ dried, remains overall attractive as an atlas.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
