First edition. A tight and nice copy of this tourism booklet with an image of President U.S. Grant on the front wrapper -- published out of the very same building where Main Street Fine Books & Manuscripts has operated since 1994! Nice little primer on this important lead mining town in northwest Illinois, adopted hometown of Ulysses S. Grant. Also exists in a stiff orange wrapper, though no priority has been established.
