Very nice, clean book, gently kept. No foxing and no names or writing to text. Light wear to spots on edges of boards and at corners and one small light spot to spine over the gilt lettering. Spine is most decorative, as are boards, which show black pictorials. Head and foot of spine show a bity of wear also, but both bands are present. Hinges are holding well, but paper is cracked at front, though no webbing is showing. Green floral endpapers are very clean. Tissue guard over portrait of Kane at frontis clean and untorn. The major subject of the book is Kane, but Parts II, III, IV and V are devoted to John Charles Fremont, John Ledyard, Charles Wilkes and Mathew C. Perry. 406 pages.
