Iowa City: An Illustrated History

The Donning Company, 1989. Hard Cover. 4to. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #049733
ISBN: 0898656419

Signed by the author with no date or inscription at the front free endpaper. Crisp and clean except for a little dust spotting at the head edge of the page block; no owners' marks; modest shelf wear at the spine ends of hard cover and dust jacket; otherwise excellent. Copiously illustrated with black-and-white and colour photographs, maps, and drawings; 224pp. + index. Laid in are two of the original promotional brochures for the book. It is particularly bittersweet to see all the lovely old houses and businesses that have since been demolished to make way for a mall and identical multistory apartment complexes, but a cute photo of Mel Andringa and F. John Herbert on page 214 does much to restore one's good spirits.

Price: $75.00
