First U.S. edition. "At the beginning is a folding panoramic view -- approximately 10 feet 14 inches long -- of the route from Niagara Falls to Quebec. It is drawn by Alfred R. Waud (1828-1891) and engraved on wood by John Andrew. [Waud was] one of the Harper illustrators, and during the Civil War combat artist for HARPER'S WEEKLY. He was reportorial in style but capable of doing work of real merit. This is particularly true of some of his magazine illustrations, especially his Western drawings ... Throughout the book there are numerous interesting wood engravings (including early views of Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec) by Andrew but there is nothing to indicate that Waud was the draftsman" (Hamilton 1260). Cole (1976) 45. Dow, p. 1225. Sabin 33938. Light wear to cloth at spine ends and corner tips, cloth sunned, mainly spine panel, a very good copy. A remarkably nice copy. (#166751).
