Fair. 3/4 leather binding with brown cloth covered boards, Original plain slick End Papers/Pages, the First Free End Page through the title page (3 pages) are detached at the contents page, but included, and the rear interior hinge paper is very lightly cracked. The text block binding except for the first portion, appears to be solid. Some very minor foxing but browning throughout. Top of spine shows wear and the corners are worn,. Seller's image, know what you are getting! Pre-packing weight is 2 lb. 8.1 oz . ORIGINAL, NOT A REPRINT, REBIND OR PHOTOCOPY!! NO Dust Jacket. CLEAN TEXT! See Picture! The Copyright date is 1867 for this 1867 Printing. This volume was purchased through Local public auction. Interesting 13 page article on Independence Hall and Independence Day. It is a shame that when the library people digitized the 1867 edition, that they did not include the plates (engravings). This leaves the reader with no appreciation for the structure or item being described. Text is important, but it is not the whole ballgame. Thank you for your purchase from Sunset Books!
