New-York: for the Author, by Kirk & Mercein, 1819. 8vo, original blue boards, rebacked, with original backstrip label laid down. 228, i-[lx], [10], lxi-lxiii pp. Three folding maps, one colored in outline, inevitable foxing, but a very good, untrimmed copy. First Edition. A complicated book, as the maps may number one or three and be colored or uncolored; and there may or may not be an errata slip. This copy lacks the latter, although pp. 7-8, "To the Reader, " contains numerous corrections of errata. In this copy the index is bound between "Addenda no. III" and "Addenda no. IV." As the book's very long title makes clear, Darby -- a surveyor and geographer -- was obsessive about including every detail that pertained to his travels. This copy bears on the title-page the stamp of " J. S. Skinner. / 1832, " surely referring to the eminent sporting and agricultural writer John Stuart Skinner (for whom see DAB). Bradford 1193. Howes D-66(aa). Sabin 18533. Streeter Sale 841. (Item Id: 5931)
