About This Item

Army and Navy Series: Brave Old Salt or Life on the Quarter Deck A Story of the Great Rebellion by Oliver Optic Hardcover Edition Boston: Lee and Shepard Publishers, 1894 or circa 1894-1910. The first edition probably appeared in 1866. Oliver Optic wrote many novels set during the American Civil War, often called "The Blue and the Gray" series. Issue Points: Red pictorial boards, original copyright 1866 and renewed 1894 as per the copyright page. Clothed in a tan pictorial dust jacket which replicates the boards, without a price, blurb or text on the flaps, which probably means it was issued prior to no later than 1910 possibly pre-1900. (Blurbs on dust jackets began to appear circa 1906-7.) Condition: Very Good+ in Very Good+ Dust Jacket. Probably scarce in original dust jacket. Book itself is relatively clean, firm binding with text-block firm to the boards (NO hinge splitting at all), boards clean, typical age-toning to the pages. Typical shelf-wear and aging, to be expected. Dust Jacket is nearly completely intact, chip to the upper spine and upper and lower front edges, and toning to the back (very common), definitely a survivor in jacket! (Most buyers from circa 1900 to 1940 threw away the dust jackets off of their books, making most dust jackets produced prior to World War II very rare, and those prior to circa 1930 scarce.) NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers. ALSO: The pictured are of the actual item for sale. (The pictures are NOT stock photos.)
