About This Item

New York: William Helburn Inc., 1927. This is a hardcover copy in a very nice pink dust jacket, that is not price-clipped ($5.00) that is also printed with a woodcut illustration of the fabled "Oak Alley". The book itself is in very good condition, as the light brown cloth covers are very clean and unmarked, even the tipped-on title on pink paper (the same paper as the jacket) looks as fresh as the day it was published. Inside the book there is some offsetting on the printed pink paper paste-down, some foxing to about 10 pages at the beginning and 15 pages or so at the end, otherwise very nice. The dust jacket is almost all there: the back panel is fine, the front panel and spine are present, but there is a small piece missing from the top of the spine which just extends onto the edge of the front panel, not affecting the image or text on the front cover. 10" high X 7 1/2" wide, 162 pages. Text by Natalie Scott. Introduction by N.C.Curtis. About 37 wonderful woodcut illustrations of Louisiana plantation houses by William Spratling, as well as headpiece and tailpiece decorations and other small vignettes for each of the 8 chapters. Index of old houses mentioned or illustrated in the text lists 73 properties. All in all, a beautiful copy in the rare dust jacket. This book will be securely wrapped and packed in a sturdy box and shipped with tracking. . Cloth. Very Good/Very Good.
