Fine in off white cloth covered boards with a gilt on black title block on the spine. In a very good+ unclipped dust jacket with only a hint of rubbing at the lower edge of the spine area and with two closed tears with related creasing at the lower edge of the front panel. Overall an extremely nice copy of this entirely true account of travel through post-Revolutionary source of information for genealogists and historians. The original document was discovered by Kenneth Roberts during his research for his book Lydia Bailey. Roberts and his wife translated the America. An excellent primary book from the French. With no prior ownership markings.
Long out of print books like this one is why Alibris is so invaluable! Kenneth Roberts was not only a masterful historical novelist, he was also an avid collector of original diaries like his MARCH TO QUEBEC and this account of life in the fledgling US. Full of color, somewhat partisan, but always a delightful read makes this book a great addition to any historical collection.
