About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Hand-Book of the State of Georgia, Accompanied by a Geological Map of the State.

Description:

First edition, octavo, 256 pp. with a large folding hand-colored geological map of the state in rear pocket. In original plum cloth with gilt spine and cover titles. Map prepared by P. H. Mell. Although Georgia first established a geological survey in the 1836 (under Cotting) and again in 1874 (under Little), little seems to actually have been published except the geological outline and map contained in this report. The map represents the first official geologic map issued by the State of Georgia and is of sufficient rariety that it does not appear in Marcou's "Mapoteca Geologica Americana" catalogue. This is an association copy containing a gift inscription from George Little, then State Geologist for Georgia, to his father "John Little Sr. from his affectionate son George Little, Atlanta Ga. Jan. 1, 1877"). Little is responsible for the geological map which does not appear to have been published with any other publication. Rare with map present. *** Condition: Complete with map. Externally, the book shows some wear and rubbing with some loss at spine ends. Spine sunned. Spine gilt partially worn away but still mostly readable. Binding nice and tight. Internally, there is some light scattered foxing, but the report is otherwise clean and unmarked. The color geological map has been professionally mounted on Japanese tissue for long term preservation and is in excellent condition. Overall, a nice copy of a very scarce report and map with an important association. *** Like many southern states struggling with reconstruction and the economic aftermath of the Civil War, Georgia produced this hand-book to attract immigrants and capital to the state. Following a short introduction (including a brief history and effects of the Civil War), Jane's Hand-Book is divided into three main parts: the country, the people, and the productions. All of Part 1 describing the geology and physical attributes of the state appear to be attributable to George Little, State Geologist. The geology, soils, topography, and water power potential of the state, including selected counties, are described with additional discussions of climate and economic resources. The geologic map accompanying this chapter is quite detailed and attractive, reflecting a large amount of field effort and expense not usually appreciated in this day of rapid transportation and satellite mapping. *** Janes' chapter about the people of Georgia contains much about government institutions (of historical interest, Georgia was the first state in the Union to form a Department of Agriculture), educational facilities (segregated, of course), transportation facilities, religious organizations, etc. His assessment of the Negro race is exactly what you might expect from a white farmer (Janes prior occupation) a decade after the end of the war. The final chapter deals mainly with agricultural and livestock products (peaches and cotton, of course, plus much more). Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1876 edition. Language: English. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
