The Marvellous Country; Three Years In Arizona And New Mexico, The Apaches’ Home by Samuel Woodworth Cozzens 1874
My mother found an original copy of this book in her basement the other day, and it has inspired her to visit Arizona and New Mexico. I will definitely want to accompany her on that trip, because she really knows how to have an adventure! This is what she told me:
The name of the book is The Marvellous Country; or, Three Years in Arizona and New Mexico, The Apaches’ Home…Exploration and Adventures in Arizona and New Mexico by Samuel Woodworth Cozzens. The important thing about the copy I have here is that it is a VERY early edition. (1874)…says it was published in Amherst, N.S: by Rogers and Black, 1874…Something also interesting is that it says “Sold only by subscription, and not for sale at the bookstores. Residents of any State desiring a copy should address the Publishers, and an agent will call upon them.” This is a very early edition indeed….Love you too!~ MUM
I believe I have found the complete and exact version of this on Google Books (except it was not printed in Amherst, NS). You can download a PDF of the whole book right here.
If anybody knows a way we could figure out how much this book is worth, please let me know!
