Description

1915 - COURTSHIP of MILES STANDISH - Antique Book by HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

The description of this book will be brief and the price will be low. I don't know if it ever had a page that listed the Author or a copyright page. The book seems to be intact but the title page has only the book's title and publisher … no date and no mention of Longfellow.

The 1915 date is found in the handwritten inscription on the front fly…a gift in that year. (See the last photograph where I inserted a photo of this inscription.)

The book was not read much. The binding is fairly tight and the pages are not dog-eared. The gold edges are very brilliant. The "title" page has some discoloration (see the 1st photo). ALL THE OTHER PAGES ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

It measures 7 1/2 X 5 1/4 X 1 inch thick and has 224 pages. There are LOTS of engravings, some complex and some very simple. The cover is a soft material (I don't believe it is leather). The front is embossed symmetrically with 8 Standing Lion symbols (called a "lion rampant".) You can make them out a little in the second photo.

Price is $10.00 and media shipping is $3.00

I have A LOT of old books to offer and they will all be priced very fairly….please keep checking my "Store."

I gladly refund any shipping charges that exceed the postage and money spent on boxes and packing materials. Of course, I will combine orders to create larger refunds. Your purchases will be shipped within 3 working days.
