About This Item

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1955. Hardcover. Good/Fair. 8vo. 438 pages, indexed. Hardcover with a green dust jacket, which is not price-clipped. The jacket is worn and has several edge tears, chips, and creases. The rear panel of the jacket is foxed. A sound copy and clean within. Foxing to the outside edges of the text block. Map endpapers are partly toned. Prior owner's inscription on the half title. The text is unmarked, but the book apparently had been in storage and has a musty aroma within. It may air out over time. Thus a reading or reference copy.

About Pages Past Used and Rare Books

Pages Past is a small used & rare bookshop located a few blocks from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Since 1996 we have been serving the Triad community as well as customers from around the world. We have around 15-20,000 volumes in our shop. We specialize in North Carolina, Virginia, Civil War, Old Leather, Christianity, Eastern and Western Philosophies, and the simply unusual. We very likely have the oldest books in Greensboro; we keep a nice selection of antiquarian volumes and scholarly books.
