Astoria: SOLD

"Astoria; or, Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains" by Washington Irving. Published by G.P. Putnam and Son, 1868. "Knickerbocker Edition."

Three-quarter leather binding with marbled cover and endpapers. Gilt lettering on the spine. Frontispiece is an engraving of Astoria, with tissue paper. Interior pages are clean and bright, minimal soil and foxing, minimal wear to binding. Very nice copy.
