Sayings Wise and Otherwise, an antique book full of Victorian wit! Published in 1870, it is composed of articles written by F.S. Cozzens, an American humorist who wrote funny poems and articles for magazines in the mid 1800's. This book was published a year after his death, by his son, a famous marine artist.

Book has been well used and shows its years...particularly the binding in the very front and back of the book. The binding of the front cover has separated from the book almost completely, but is holding on by some threads (see last picture)! The front cover is still attached on the outside fairly strong and with gentle care, won't separate from the rest of the cover. The rest of the book seems to be bound fairly well and there are no markings.

Great little book to add to an antique book collection or display! And...a funny little piece of history to read!

This item will ship via USPS Media Mail to all U.S. locations and via USPS First Class International Mail to all other destinations.
