Book Condition: Good-VG


Original edition, rebound in light green buckram, gilt stamped title on spine panel. 172 pp. + 32 pp. at rear of excursions, appendices, advertisements. Identified as 2nd Edition based on statement in Appendix. Ex-library copy, stamped endpapers, several stamps on early leaves from Mercantile Library and Free Library of Philadelphia. Title page slightly dampstained, with small area of darkening along fore-edge of several early leaves. Approx. 1/2" notch of paper loss along top edge of Contents leaf. Otherwise nicely intact interior, though evidently slightly trimmed. Graded as Good-VG due less to defects than to rebound/trimmed status. Exceptionally scarce, early guide, in fact one of the earliest promotional publications that led to the emergence of Niagara Falls as the premiere natural tourist attraction it later became.
