A faulty copy of a scarce Mormon history. (vii)-viii, 176 pages + [16] pages advertisements. Lacking the spine and front board. Lacking all preliminary leaves including the title page, except for one leaf of the preface, which has a corner missing with loss of text. Pencil scribbles on rear endpaper. Rear board detached. The folding map is present. The map has no tears or chips, but it has one misfold and some foxing and staining and fingermarks.
