New England Mercantile Union Business Directory: Six Parts in One. 1849

Published by Pratt & Company.

Love the typography of the title page, the way the middle text spreads like eagle wings.

This copy has three of the six maps: Rhode Island, Vermont, and Maine.
...collected by the most competent men to be procured, who have carefully canvassed every town and city...

Someone wrote a rather childlike little essay about Vermont in the memorandum, in pencil, that looks like it was copied verbatim from another book.

There was one law school in New England then, Harvard. Seven medical schools.
Brewers to Carriage Smiths.
