THE GREAT WEST,
AND HER COMMERCIAL METROPOLIS.
COMPRISING
THE BUSINESS & BUSINESS MEN OF ST. LOUIS.

VOL. II.

THIS highly instructive and useful work will immediately follow the publication of this book, and the following beautiful engravings which are inserted are given as specimens of the illustrations which will adorn it. It was at first the intention of the author to let the "Business and Business Men of St. Louis," make a portion of the present volume; but our readers will see at a glance, that this would be impossible. This book is already sufficiently voluminous, and the "Business and Business Men of St. Louis" will be sufficient in themselves to form a volume of equal magnitude.

The next volume, comprising the "Business and Business Men of St. Louis," will be gotten up in the same magnificent manner, which is a guarantee of its utility, its authenticity, and artistical beauty. It will contain the biographies and photographs of those of our citizens who stand at the head of their respective classes of business, and whose energy, success and examples, would teach useful lessons to posterity.

This work will give also in detail, the business of the great metropolis; the extent, variety, and wealth of its manufactures and commerce, which, already so great, in its colossal strides, bids fair to surpass any city of our Union. The illustrations will comprise the buildings of our prominent business firms, public edifices, and some physical features, among which will be an illustration of the "Big Mound," from which St. Louis derives its sobriquet of the "Mound City."

RICHARD EDWARDS,
COR. OF 3D AND PINE STS.
EDITOR & PUBLISHER.
