With Sack and Stock in Alaska by George Broke, 1891 - First Edition
A lovely copy, well preserved with its Two Original Folding Maps - in colour, bound in blue cloth covers, bright gilt lettering to the spine and black endpapers. With a few light marks to the boards, bumping to corners, slight browning and rubbing to the tips of the spine the book is, overall, in very good condition. Internally very clean, especially the maps, the book was never read as the pages are still uncut. Some sporadic light marks to pages, a touch of browning to the pages' edges and browning to the top edge. At time of cataloguing this was the best copy available online.
