The True George Washington

by Paul Leicester Ford

Condition: Very Good

New York: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1897. Hardcover. Very Good. 1897 Vintage Collectible Hardback Book of 319 pages in Good condition with a tight binding and mostly clean crisp pages with some minor soiling. This is an ex-Church Library Book with some of the expected markings, but no pocket in the back of the book or outside spine markings. There is a small vintage bookstore sticker in the bottom left hand corner of the first blank end page ("Moyer's Book Barn Strasburg, PA"). There is a signature written in old ink and dated 7/30/98- this would be 1898! There is a small hole inside the front cover along the inside spine- this is a small issue and does not affect the binding. Outside cloth covers show some soiling and some wear to the outside corners and edges. Heavy paper with gold-gilded page ends at the top of the book. Unique vintage book!
