NORTHERN IOWA: CONTAINING HINTS AND INFORMATION OF VALUE TO EMIGRANTS. BY A PIONEER.

Dubuque: W.A. Adams, Printer, Nonpareil Publishing House, 1858. 39, [1] pp. Stitched in original printed wrappers. Frontis plate of 'Dubuque, Iowa, 1858.' Plate of 'Ward School House' at page [31]. Plate of 'Dubuque Female Seminary' at page [33]. The last page is an advertisement for the 'Land Office of J.B. Calhoun & Co.' in Dubuque. Very Good plus.

There were two 1858 printings. This one includes the View of Dubuque as a frontis, instead of the map which appears in the other issue. The pamphlet describes the public lands available for purchase by settlers, homesteading, railroads, and the many advantages of the Dubuque area for natural resources, healthy environment, climate, family-friendly settlements, economic opportunity. Moreover, "Iowa has fewer Paupers and Criminals" than in the East. The Dubuque Emigrant Association was formed in early 1858.
