Philadelphia Robert Desilver 1831 Full Morocco Very Good Plus 
358, viii, 128 pp. 8vo, 7.25 by 4.5 inches. Of interest beyond parochial Philadelphia history, since picks up quite a lot of general interest on the industrialization of America, attitudes towards blacks, religious attitudes, etc. But this is not to minimize its value and enjoyment as a snapshot on Philadelphia at the zenith of its relative importance within the new Republic. Moderate toning/browning of leaves, but otherwise mostly clean. Some soilage evident on foreedges. Recased, with original spine label preserved. 
Price: 750.00 USD
