This is a really lovely old 1911 book titled Things Beautiful compiled by Samuel Francis Woolard. The book has page after page of poetry and numerous really amazing prints that are so well done and very lifelike. The artist who illustrated the book is the well known artist James Montgomery Flagg. The poems are written by a wide variety of well known and lesser known poets of the period (1800's and early 1900's). The book is soft cover with a blue paper outer cover and another cover inside that with a color print on it. The Edges of the pages are naturally ragged (made that way). The book is partially sewn at the binding and is also bound by very long metal staple like attachments. The interior pages have yellowed a bit but the paper is a very thick rippled good quality paper similar to watercolor painting paper. the book was published by The Goldsmith-Woolard Publishing Co, Wichita Kansas, U.S.A., Entered at Stationers Hall, London, England. and below that says Fifty fifth thousand.
The outer blue cover has partially come loose from the inner cover. Between the covers is a yellowish mesh textured translucent layer of paper. The interior cover and exterior cover edges are a little bit brittle and have chipped at the edges somewhat. There are a couple of water stains on the outer blue cover. But the interior cover and interior of the book is very clean and aside from slight yellowing of the paper are in great condition There is a total of 61 pages. Te book is over 9 inches tall and 6 inches across.
This is a wonderful view into the past.
Will be mailed by media mail to save on shipping cost. It's slower but cheaper. If you want it faster, can send priority mail for an additional 3.00. Just convo if you would like the priority mail option.
