About This Item

Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1947. First edition. Hardcover. Very good +/Very good. 432pp. Octavo [22 cm] Green cloth with gilt stamped titles on the front board and backstrip, with minimal rubbing to the extremities, and light bruising to the spine ends. In a very attractive dust jacket, with subtle fading to the spine (title and illustration still bold), and light chipping to the edges. A copy in better condition than usually seen. One of a handful of book length works to be penned by the great western historian, Dale Morgan. According to Saunders "Great Salt Lake dealt more with the historical context of the lake than the body of water itself, describing the epocal [sic] history of the lake itself, early exploration and mapping, the settlement of Salt Lake City, tourism and recreation, and the advent of railroads beside and across the lake. Besides his incomplete history of the Mormons, this work contains the only published example of Morgan's historical treatment of his religious culture." Saunders 19.
