Crofutt's New Overland Tourist and Pacific Coast Guide - 1879
Crofutt, George: CROFUTT’S NEW OVERLAND TOURIST AND PACIFIC COAST GUIDE...OVER THE UNION, CENTRAL, AND SOUTHERN PACIFIC RAILROADS.... Chicago. 1879. 272,pp. plus advertisements, maps, and folding plates. Original cloth wrappers. \ Contemporary pencil ownership signature on first leaf of advertisements. The new Crofutt guide was first published in 1879, and made an annual appearance with revisions. This copy is styled on the titlepage: “Vol. 2 – 1879-80.” Flake calls this the second volume a revision and not a continuation of the first volume. Wonderfully illustrated with plates depicting railway routes and scenery from all over the West. Crofutt guides rarely escaped heavy use; the present copy survives in remarkable condition. Scarce.
