Place Published: London
Publisher: John Murray
Date Published: 1850

Description: 2 vols. 12mo, original blind stamped cloth; (both spines rebacked in modern cloth with preservation of part of original backstrips, otherwise very good). London: John Murray, 1850. Very good.

Comments: "More than half of the two volumes published in 1849 pertain to the South. Lyell's scientific interest took him along the regular routes as well as into the remoter corners seldom seen by other travelers. ... Lyell's description of the coastal islands of the southeastern coast, erosion, topography, and fossils in Georgia and Alabama are an important contribution to travel literature, while his detailed observations of the Mississippi Valley from the delta to the mouth of the Ohio River equal or excell the account of other travelers." Clark III, 352. Lyell was also a keen observer of the living conditions of slaves. Howes L-574.

I can't begin to thank you for the personal care and attention you all gave to me on Saturday - when I came to Argosy during your tech breakdown. I love the four marvelous books I purchased for my nephew and the generous wrapping you provided. I shall always remember the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon. With appreciation! - Leigh C.
