I have here for sale a book entitled THE RAND MCNALLY STANDARD ATLAS OF THE WORLD. It is a first edition published in 1887 by The Continental Publishing Co, Chicago. It features 66 colour maps from around the world as well as 80 b/w in-text engravings and about 30 diagrams and tables.
The maps and plans cover whole countries, states and then down to individual city street plans - great to see New York, Boston and Philadelphia with their own maps, and of course the Map of the World is centred on the Americas as opposed to Europe. Brown hardboards with blind embossing and gilt lettering to the front board. Front board is very loose and the rear board is detached. A couple of loose pages and one double page is detached. Book ends with page 192 (map of South America) and I think this is the last page but there is no flyleaf.Condition good but could do with a rebind or you can sell the maps individually. 192 pages, 36 cm x 28 cm. If there is more t.
