This is a lovely copy of the First American edition of Companions of Columbus. It was published in 1831 less than a month after the first British edition. This is BAL 10133. This copy has been beautifully rebound in chocolate colored leather. There are raised hubs on the spine in the tradition of classic bookbinding and the labels are lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers have been added and the volume makes a fine presentation. The textblock, for the most part is clean but shows sporadic foxing which is at its worst on the title page. The binding is tight and strong. This is a companion work to The Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus. In it, Washington Irving writes of the adventures and exploits of such exploreres as De Leon, Vespucci, Nino, Balboa, and Guerra. A n impressive copy. We are pleased to send pictures on Request.

Price = 275.00 USD
