Published c. 1880's, Boston for C.M. Emerson.
10 leaves lithographically printed on one side only. Text in English. Accordion style binding format.
Publisher's glossy gilt ink printed paper wrappers, gilt title lettering. All views show locations on water, either river banks, lake shores, or harbor fronts.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, final image is slightly edge defective (repaired with archival tape), rear cover with small lower corner sticker removal loss of color, various small signs of handling but nothing offensive or severe, remains overall attractive as an object. Still nice looking and likely a scarce late 19th century tourism item in any condition.
Paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive. Booklet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail showing how this item survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books and ephemera of all types. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account.
