LIOT, W.B. - Panama, Nicaragua, and Tehuantepec; or, considerations upon the question of communication between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
London, Simpkin & Marshall 1849. Octavo blindstamped cloth; vi,63pp & errata slip, two very long and handsome folding lithograph panoramas. Foxing but a pretty good copy. ¶ Liot first visited Panama in 1845 and the following year produced a report for a proposed transit company in London - which got nowhere. The discovery of gold in California and Mexico has re-ignited interest and this (after five more visits it is still pretty well as first written) is now published. His scheme for a road and or railroad is, as he said, less satisfactory than a canal but he does not see this being practicable for another half century.AUD 1650.00 [Appr.: EURO 1133 US$ 1240.03 | £UK 966.25 | JP¥ 138082] Book number 6887
