Thoreau and the American Indians

By Sayre, Robert F.

Princeton: Princeton University, 1977. Book. Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Scarce book in the original hard cover 1st edition, no additional printings on copyright page. While sound and cosmetically attractive, the book has some issues. The original bookstore adhesive price sticker or perhaps from a later bookstore sale is on the upper right corner of the 1st pastedown. I feel reasonably sure it could be gently removed with appropriate mild solvent and so forth, but do not wish to risk a resulting blemish. Also a name is penned, long hand under the front flap on 1st pastedown, a date in the same hand is on upper rt. corner 1st endsheet. Other than this the book is in great shape, brick colored boards are clean, unbumped, w/ 1" mild scuff/scratch back, center, hard to see. Text clean, unmarked, unthumbed, perhaps read once and the stored carefully. Jacket is roughish with edge wear at extremities, esp. head spine w/ crease, micro tears to depth of 1/4" less so to foot, general abrasion. sculffing, wear at crease elsewhere. This said the jacket reads well in it's mylar wrapper and has no long tears, flaps look newish. Price front flap is $14.50, 239 paginated pages. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. We assure the buyer that books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, using the strict, traditional standards.*.
