Near Fine in Wraps: shows only minor indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities; faint sunning to the blue-green background field of the backstrip and near the hinges (the titles thereon remain bold and clearly legible); a couple of tiny, very mild scuffs at the middle of the backstrip; a former owner has inscribed an internet address at the copyright page; an errata sheet had been affixed to the inside of the front cover, but it has come loose and has been laid in, leaving an outline of glue residue where it had been affixed; else flawless. The binding is square and secure; the text is clean. No longer pristine, but remains very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 154pp. Paperback: Pictorial Wraps. The first schoolhouse in Boulder, Colorado, was built in 1860. During the next hundred years, the people of Boulder County established sixty-six school districts. SIGNED BY AUTHOR.
