An early photographic account of New England, each volume has a one-page introduction and 30+ black and white plates. Of especial interest to any of us who have lived or currently live in the areas pictured, as the changes over the past 100+ years have been seismic.
___DESCRIPTION: Five volumes, staple bound, original paper wrappers with titles embossed in gilt, five pages of text printed to recto only, 171 black and white plates with captions, all printed to recto only; oblong octavos (5 7/8" by 8").
___CONDITION: All five volumes are in varying degrees of very good condition, the wrappers all display a bit of age toning but all are internally bright and complete with no prior owner markings, "New England Lakes" and "Rivers of New England" have some chips and tape repairs to the wrappers, with "Rivers of New England" lacking the back wrapper, otherwise an overall very good set of scenic New England views.
