1 Adequate Travel Atlas
Matthew-Northrup Co. 1893 First Edition Hardcover Very Good- 
Slight discoloration on covers as if carried in someone's hand, slight wear on top of spine, and front corner cover wear (bit of cloth is worn away at that point). ; Adequate Travel Atlas United States was printed and compiled in 1893 by the Matthew-Northrup Co. This is NOT a reprint! See the pictures! Not many originals of this book out there, although the Newberry and some other top academic libraries have copies. This is a 244 page book with beautiful, unmarked endpapers in front and back commemorating Washington, DC, Chicago, Niagra, and Yosemite. I found no marks on the maps or pages. For its age and purpose, the book is relatively tight. This would be a thoughtful gift for map enthusiasts; ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 244 pages

19 The Glories of the World's Fair The Greatest of all Photographic Reproductions
The Fair 1894 Booklet Good+ 
You are buying the 10 volume set of oversized (11" by 13. 5") booklets containing sixteen images each of the 1893 The World's Fair Columbian Exposition (aka The Chicago World's Fair). The introduction in Part 1 of the series states that there are 10 parts -- all of which are represented. The only date on these publications we identified was the 1894 copyright date. Interestingly, this series was published by The Fair, a Chicago department store located at State, Adams and Dearborn Streets which was started in 1874 and purchased by Montgomery Ward in 1957. The flagship store building at this location was demolished in 1984. Of course, Montgomery Ward shuttered operations in 2001. Defects in the booklets are as follows: Part 1: slight chip at bottom of spine fold, smaill tear along top of back cover and top corner wrinkle on back cover; Part 2: slight bottom page edge foxing, small tear to side edge of back cover and small stain at top edge of back cover; Part 3: small tear at bottom spine fold; Part 4 & 5: no obvious defects; Part 6: slight crease on top front cover; Part 7: slight wrinkling of covers and pages at bottom corner; Part 8: slight chipping along bottom edge and small chip repair using book tissue mending tape, and small tear at middle of back cover; Part 9: slight darkening/soiling to front; and Part 10: chipping to bottom edges of front and back covers, a three inch tear at the middle bottom back cover, wrinkled and slightly chipped back cover upper corner, and soiling to bottom corner of back cover some of which has bled through to the corner (white space) of the last page on which an image is featured. Interestingly, this back cover advertises the availability of a binder for this series at a cost of $0.43. I have never seen an example of this binder. ; This would make a truly stunning addition to either a World's Fair Collector or a Chicago history buff!
