Boston: S. Hall and Thomas & Andrews; Samuel Etheridge, 1797. First Edition. Leather. 8vo. Nice set of the first editions of Morse's Gazetteers. Both volumes are complete with all maps and in their original leather covers. The American Gazetteer has seven maps (six folding). The Eastern Continent has 17 folding maps (the title page mistakenly calls for 18, but the instruction to the binder specifies only 17, all by title). Sound bindings; front hinge of The American Gazetteer has been neatly mended. Clean pages. All 24 maps are complete but one; the "Map of the Northern Part of the United States" is missing a 1" x 2" rectangle at the bottom of the inside edge (likely removed during binding). Some of the maps in both volumes have minor toning and wear to their edges. The margins of several have been trimmed close to the frame-lines. Both covers have some wear; the original red and gilt spine labels are in good shape. Overall, very nice. Very hard-to-find as a matched set. Very Good -. Item #007550
