  • Click on Image to expandFitzgerald, Carol:  The Rivers of America A Descriptive Bibliography.  New Castle, DE: Oak Knoll Press, 2001. First Edition. Both volumes of this two volume set are in fine condition in dark blue cloth covered boards with gilt text stampings on the spines. Both are octavos measuring 9" by 6" with decorative end sheets. There is a lengthy gift inscription to a prior owner on the verso side of the fly title page. Both volumes are in fine unclipped dust jackets. Volume I is signed and inscribed by the author on the fly title page. Extensive research and years of searching for every variant copy for all of the titles in the Rivers of America series have allowed the author to compile an extremely detailed and highly authoritative bibliography of this series. Volume 1 contains 434 pages while volume 2 contains pages 435 to 899 which includes an index for both volumes. I am of the opinion that this is one of the best bibliographies ever published as it goes into extreme detail of each volume and every variant, provides a biography of each author and each illustrator. I know of no other bibliography that covers as much material or as thoroughly. An invaluable resource for any serious collector of this series. An extremely handsome set and now that it is out of print sure to grow in value.
