Description:

In original blindstamped brown cloth. Octavo, 114 pp. plus 8 hand-colored plates of geological sections, and folding hand-colored geological map of Manhattan. *** Condition: Some shelfwear to extremities with about 1/2 inch loss at head of spine. Front cover with some light spotting and white residue from label removal at lower left corner. Rear hinge with short splits to cloth, but hinges sound and binding tight. Blacked out library hand stamps (Northwestern Michigan College) on front and rear pastedowns but no other library markings present. Text has a little scattered foxing limited mainly to margins. The map and plates exhibit very slight text offsetting. *** Cozzens prepared his geological history of New York City while employed as librarian of the New York Lyceum. The work is well illustrated with attractively colored sections and profiles of the local geology including Staten Island, Hudson River and Palisades, plus outlying areas (Donderberg, Niagara Falls, Rhode Island). Cozzens' geological map of Manhattan Island was the first detailed attempt at such a map of the region and was published the same year as Mather's large Geological Map of Long and Staten Islands.

Book Description W.E. Dean, 1843. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. New York, octavo, [vi], [7]-114 p., tables, and 9 hand-colored plates, including a folding colored geologic map and sections. ***Content: This classic treatise by Cozzens (1780-1865), a New York chemist and geologist, is his most famous work. It not only provides one of the earliest detailed descriptions of the rocks, minerals and fossils of Manhattan, Staten Island, the Palisades of New Jersey and neighboring regions, but also describes localities as distant as Niagara Falls and Rhode Island. Five lengthy tables compiled from the works of Buckland, Lyell, Hall, Emmons and others delineate geological ages, characteristic rocks, fossils, etc., and the author adds local observations and commentary. ***Condition: This is a VG+ copy in the original embossed brown cloth, with a gilt-lettered backstrip. The covers are very sound, showing only light wear to the extremities; spine gilt lettering and decoration complete and bright. Joints just starting, hinges quite solid, binding firm. Save for (the usual) uniform light toning, the text pages are fresh, clean and bright; plates very clean, with bright, bold hand-coloring. The plates in this volume are exquisite and strikingly handsome. No evidence of previous ownership. This is a very nice, complete copy of a scarce work in its original state. Hazen 2680, 2681. BMNH 396. Ward and Carozzi 540. International shipping will be extra, but only at my cost. Bookseller Inventory # OG5125
