Corners of boards are worn and hinge is starting to lightly separate at title page, but has been well repaired by archival tape. Early pages are slightly rippled but are complete.

"The subject-matter of this book, Success and Happiness, has been the consideration of every eminent pen, from the days of Solomon to the present. To say any thing strictly new would be impossible; nor would we presume that our knowledge and experience would be as valuable as the maxims of the wise and sublime truths which have become a part of the standard literature." : 6 x 8.75 in.: 600 pages .
