New York / San Francisco: J. Dewing Publishing Company, 1888. Folio. Folio. Several parts, each consisting of the original printed wraps and sequential pages, with photogravures, etchings and text illustrations, tissue guards present.

This item consists of the following, all house in a publishers cloth portfolio: Parts 9-18. Part 19 states that "In this number begins Picturesque Colorado, by Ernest Ingersoll" (but the pagination continues as before) and there is a difference to the text contained on the outer wraps. It is followed by parts 20-22, and ends with page 352. Therefore, appears to contain about 1/3 of the set, perhaps represnting the middle volume of the three bound volumes some booksellers advertise. Regardless, a very nice representation with some foxing and smudging to some page edges and plates, but only very rarely of significance. All the parts appear to be complete.
