"The Polar and Tropical Worlds" by Dr. G. Hartwig. Published by C.A. Nichols, 1874.
Interesting old book, part reference guide, part anthropological study, part travel memoir. Bound in full tan leather boards with gilt lettering on black leather spine labels. Some light wear to covers; browning to endpapers, but inner pages are clean. Illustrated throughout with plates and drawings, this book looks at the polar and equatorial regions of the globe and the people and animals that inhabit them. 811 pages, including index; approx. 6"x9". Some light rubbing to leather, mostly at lower right corner on front cover.
