Features six individual colored illustrations from steel engravings. Contains the following pieces ; 1) "The Lighthouse", 2) "The Incendiary" and 3) "Margaret Seaton Victory".

Throughout this amazing book we found snippets of antique lace and ribbon cuttings as bookmarks tucked between the pages. A lovely treasure and sure to please the most avid literary collector.

The interior is in overall excellent condition for its age and era, there is foxing and browning to the pages but none are missing or torn. the book is completely intact and quite sturdy however the original leather spine cover is missing.
