About This Item

London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., 1892. Hardcover. Fair. Red cloth-covered boards are mottled and splotchy, but title and author in black are clear. Cloth is worn at top and bottom spine edges and front corner tips. Gilt lettering on spine still has some shine. Front board has a few tiny pin-head-size spots of white. Front paste down and free front endpaper are split at binding. Previous owner's bookplate in on inside of front board. Previous bookstore's stamp is on free front endpaper. Pencil notation (not ours) on ffep states that "pages 113-128 are hanging by thread." This is true. Binding has several splits, but none of the pages are missing. Pages are unmarked and clean throughout. There are 4 pages after the index that list other books in a "Social Science Series."

About Black River Books

Black River Books is a hobby that grew into a passion, then an internet business, and finally into a business with an actual store front. Having the store has caused us to minimize our online presence. We are located at 330 Kalamazoo St. Suite 2, in South Haven, MI 49090. Order online, should you find a treasure in our small collection, check out our website, or stop in and see our in-store collection of over 40,000 books in beautiful South Haven, on the Black River and the shores of Lake Michigan.
