Smith, Roswell C
Poor. Hardcover. Hardcover, 268 pages plus ad at back. Title continues: "...in which mental arithmetic is combined with the use of the slate: contains a Complete System for all practical purposes; being in dollars and cents. Stereotype edition, revised and enlarged with exercises for the slate in which is added, a praxctical system of book-keeping." This is an original copy, and as such has foxing throughout and several small tears. Very old ink staining to edges of first 15 or so pages; owner name on insdie front cover and practice writing at back. Greenish paper-covered covers are terribly worn; the book has a black leather spine with still readable gold title, which is split along the front hinge (front cover held on only by singed thread). Front and back covers are heavily chipped, tips worn (or nibbled) away. Fun to look through, recognizing the book's antiquity, a complete, but poor copy. .
