Place Published: New York
Publisher: Low
Date Published: 1805

Description: 7 volumes. Illustrated with 100 copper plate engravings. Short folios, original 1/4 black leather over cloth. New York: J. & E. Low, 1805- 1811. First American Edition.

Comments: The title page states that there are 170 plates. Although this set lacks many of them (including most of the maps), it is unclear how many were actually inserted, as the pagination is inconsistent and some plates have duplicate numbers. All copies of this book, including the one in the Library of Congress, have less than 170 plates. There is the usual browning and scattered foxing, but altogether a sound, attractive set of this early encyclopedia begun by John Low & finished after his death by E. Low.

Your beautifully wrapped package of books -- two copies of "Journal in the Night" -- arrived at my door this morning and made my day! A thousand thanks for the care you took, first to find them, and then to send them as you did, all done up with tissue paper to boot. It was like Christmas in June AND it was my first experience buying books on the Internet. All the best to you, and perhaps our paths will cross again. - Janet B.
