By James D. Dana.

HARDBACK, 9x6”, 399 pages, 16 plates plus 55 other illustrations in text. Most plates are full page photos or maps (some fold-out). Covers all of the Hawaiian islands and more. This is a lovely historical book with much to interest the volcanologist or the person interested in Hawaiian history. (FAIR. Generally Good, with clean interior and solid binding. One fold-out map, the Bathymetric Map of the Oceans is a bit tattered. The edge of the page block is irregular, typical for books of this age from before machine edge trimmers were in common use. What makes the book “Fair” is that it has been aggressively preserved by a library : inside hinges are taped with cloth tape, spine ends taped, and has been covered with a self-made dust jacket covered with a plastic Brodart-type sleeve. Has library and ex-library markings. This is a nice, solid, and clean reading copy.) $28
