Phillips' germinal list of maps and views from the collection in the Library of Congress is still important and useful although originally created over 100 years ago. It was a cartographical as well as a bibliographical report. The slim volume contains information on maps and views from 1782 to 1900. This list was long out of print and was not easily available to collectors or dealers until this edition became available. Second edition, 87 pp. Hard bound in gray buckram.
