Traveller's guide & emigrant's directory, through the states of Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan

New York: H. Phelps & B. S. Squire, Jun. 1836. Broadside (approx. 17" x 22"), text in 5 columns beneath the running head, all within an ornate ornamental border; generally clean and with several neat old repairs on the verso at the folds; all else very good. The printer's imprint at the very bottom (and outside the ornamental border) of "James Van Norden, printer, 27 Pine-street, New-York" has been shaved, with loss. While the broadside is separately recorded, it is sometimes found with Traveller's map of Michigan, Illinois Indiana & Ohio as published the same year by Humphrey Phelps. As is likely the case here as the broadside shows previous folds in 16ths and apparently was removed from a pocket-map binding. Includes history, geography, "face of the country," products and manufactures, internal improvements, population, general remarks for emigrants, and price of passage from New York to various cities in the four states. Humphrey Phelps and Bela S. Squire were both New York City publishers at this time. American Imprints 40583. Item #59397
