Scarce Illustrated 1887 Book, Rambles in Old Boston, by Rev. Edw. Porter, w/ Map

Here is scarce copy of the 1887 edition of "Rambles in Old Boston" by the Rev. Edward G Porter and published by Cupples and Hurd, then of 94 Boylston Street, Boston.  The book measures 10 1/2" by 8" and contains 439 pages including fold out map and a host of illustrations depicting various places and people associated with the town.  Each chapter is preceded by a sepia depiction of the subject of the chapter (interleaved with tissue); and other black and white illustrations are included within pages of text (the entire list of illustration takes up four pages -- we have only included the first page in the photos). This is a hard cover book partially bound with pebble texture leather and it is gilded on top edge. Front and back covers are in fairly good condition, however, the spine has significant deterioration (see photo). Despite the spine issues, the book is tight and stable.  Aside from a couple of small tears to the map (no losses), the contents are in very good to near excellent condition with only light age-related mellowing but nothing noteworthy to report in the way of damage, foxing or odor.
