History of Topsfield Massachusetts and Map

by Dow, George Francis

Condition: Very Good+/No Jacket

Topsfield: The Topsfield Historical Society, 1940. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Stated as one of 400 copies printed. Handsome, straight copy, approaching Near Fine condition. Splendid hard cover with buckramesque tough green cloth boards and good spine gilt. Measures 9 1/2 x 6 1/2". The books flaws are rather mild to my eye, some of the early sheets have mild improper closing sort of crease, so mild as to be hard to see. Additionally there is just a bit of tip bumping. Text seems superb, unmarked, parchmentlike paper, stored in acid free clear sleeve. Accompanying the book is a whimsical map of Topsfield, folded and worn/darkened at the folds, dated as 1650-1950. Foto of book to follow. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.
