This is a RARE, 1886, 1st edition titled "A Trip Around The World" by George Moerlein.

It chronicles the world-wide adventure travels of the author in a world that no longer exists. It is illustrated with 110 color lithos "printed in color oils" and each is still protected with tissue guards. It has a color map of his travels, AND, at the back, he has given us a list and price guide of his accommodations. The Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan was $3.50 per day and I certainly hope that included his meals. There is a printed signature inscription from the author dedicating the book to his parents-who likely financed his travel.

Condition: It contains 205 pages and is a heavy book. It measure 11" tall by 8 1/2" wide by 2 1/2" thick.
All illustrations are bright and protected by the tissue guards but there is sporadic yellowing inside. The text is unmarked.
Please don't judge this book by its covers! They have definite wear with spotting on front, back and spine. The hinges are cracked but the sewn binding continues to anchor the pages. The gilt page edges is still present although faded in some areas.
This is still an elegant book and a wonderful glimpse at what foreign travel was like back in the day.
