Illustrations of Buildings in 19th Century Salt Lake City

Edward Thomas Parry (1859-1938), one of my great-grandfathers, owned a book filled with old illustrations of buildings and sites in Salt Lake City. The book did not have any wording on the cover, and the title page is missing, so I have no clue regarding the origin of the book. There is a beautiful illustration of old Liberty Park.
