Allen & Ginter's flags of all nations [wrapper title]. Flags of all nations and flags of the states and territories...

Richmond, VA: Allen & Gitner, [1888]. First edition, 8vo, pp. [44]; illustrated with chromolithography throughout showing the flags of 96 nations, U.S. states and territories; original chromolithograph wrappers, the whole in a contemporary maroon cloth binding gilt stamped on the upper cover "Steamship Lampassas." The Lampassas was part of the Mallory Steamship Line, with service between New York, Mobile, and Galveston, among other southern ports, and this volume was likely part of the ship's library. She was built in 1883 and scrapped in 1924. Allen and Ginter were manufacturers of cigarettes and high grade smoking tobaccos in Richmond, and this was likely a promotional give-away. Covers spotted, rear hinge starting; all else very good and clean. Item #55555
