This appears to be a facsimile reprint of the 1890 1st edition, however, it appears [ to me at least] that the maps have been reduced in the photostatic process, as they are included as bound in pages. My recollection of the original is that the maps are folded in at the rear, so I would guess these have been reduced in size. Scarce in any format!

1st Edition [Free Press - 1982]. This is a very large oblong folio in blue cloth. 352pp. There is scattered foxing throughout the book, although it seems to mostly affect the prelims. In addition, the first few prelims/title page have some diagonal creasing to them - the result of a very large book being carelessly opened. There is no dust jacket, but this is probably the way it was issued. The binding is slightly shaken, but one would expect that with a book this size - all in all a very nice copy of a scarce title. This is the complete guide to historical gerrymandering! Scarce title!
