Beautiful copy of this old, antique book. Not pristine, but in very good condition for a book 110 years old.

The rough cut pages have a couple of small, bent corners but are otherwise free of any rips, tears, or markings. The edge of page 64 does have a small tear that matches the shape and size of excess paper on the edge of page 62. I believe this was a manufacturers defect and the two pages were connected together at one time.

The binding appears to be in good condition. The beautiful design (by J.W.R.) of this hardcover book features navy blue stenciled vines and flowers on a gray background. The lettering on the spine and cover are gold gilt. There is the expected wear and tear (of a book this age) to the cloth cover, most notably some extreme wear & tear to the edges, corners and bottom of the book. There is also a worn sticker on the outside spine featuring the numbers 2070.

The inside front cover has a label from the Chocorua Public Library and there are few pencil markings on the first end paper. The inside back cover has an empty library envelope stamped Jan 06 1985 and Dec 14 1986.

I encourage you to enlarge all the photos so you can see this book close up! A lovely book for displaying and reading.
