Book Description Goodspeed's Empire Publishing House, NY, 1876. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. This 6.50 x 9.25, 1148 page book is an 1876 edition and has the Goodspeed's Empire Publishing House, Chicago and New York, listed as publisher but below is listed A.L. Bancroft & Company, San Francisco, 1876, which matches the copyright date. The book has 1148 pages and could be described as only in Good condition. It has received some modest repair in the past and appears to have had the covers reattached with professional materials. The leather covers are thoroughly worn with the two bottom corners worn through and the leather spine with raised bands also shows considerable wear. The paper label on the spine is securely attached but has one piece missing as shown in our photo. There is a piece of the spine foot loose but still attached to the cover. All in all the covers are securely attached and the book is not shaken but firmly held together. There is a penciled name and the notation "Xmas 1877" on the front pastedown. The test of the book is in remarkably nice condition with the tissue guard protecting the frontispiece illustration of Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The book is filled with lithographic illustrations, some full page, and numerous tables and graphs giving considerable information about the United States in 1876. The latter part of the book provides summaries of the individual states as well as prominent personalities. Affixed to the rear free endpaper is a folding map showing then centennial railroad routes of the United States as well as a diagram of the centennial grounds in Philadelphia, 1876.
