1 Complete Map of Vermont Showing Highways & Natural Features with an Index of All Cities, Villages, Post-Offices and Rail-road Stations Compiled from the Latest Government Surveys and Original Sources
Boston National Publishing Company 1901 First Edition Cloth Boards Fine 
A very handsome antique colored map of Vermont in a superb state of preservation. The map when opened measures 56 by 36 inches, and it is vertical, as appropriate for a state that runs lengthwise north to south. The boards of the folding map are 10.5 by 5 inches. The back of the map is lined with protective canvas. Each county is demarcated with different colored boundary lines, and these lines are broad, giving a real panache to the map. ther than the tiniest pinprick holes at perhaps two spots where folds meet, close to pristine.

4 Thompson, Zadock History of Vermont, Natural, Civil and Statistical, In Three Parts, with a New Map of the State, and 200 Engravings
Burlington, VT Chauncey Goodrich 1842 Hardcover Very Good 
Book. 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall. [4], 224, 224, 200, [4], 64 pp. With folding map of state in frontis and numerous woodcut illustrations throughout. Also containing the 1853 64 page appendix. Howes T-209. Split to front joint at both extremities. Boards holding well. Wear to full calf, and some dryness, but overall more attractive than one generally finds this work when still bound in contemporary calf. Front hinge was repaired with white band of cloth. Text lightly toned, generally clean, and text block is tight and sturdy. Map has two minor close tears along folds but is remarkably clean and attractive, especially given the tissue-like paper used for it. This is a very good if not slightly better copy.

5 Thompson, Zadock Journal of a Trip to London, Paris and the Great Exhibition of 1851
Burlington, VT Nichols & Warren 1852 1st Edition Hardcover Good 
Book. 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall. 144 pp. With frontis illustration of Crystal Palace. Presentation copy with "Token of Gratitude" written in gilt on front cover, is inscribed on second fly leaf, "Eli Chittenden Esq. with respects of Z. Thompson." Chittenden was prominent Vermonter, bearing one of the best known names in the state. In addition to a Yankee's impressions of the first true world exposition, this is a travelogue of England and France by well-known Vermont writer. Heavy toning of pages -- not exactly foxing, but soilage resulting mostly from the particular paper stock. Wear to spine extremities and elsewhere, albeit less so, to cloth binding. Tight binding. A good copy.
