General Alumni Catalogue of The University of Pennsylvania 1917

By Aumni Association

Philadelphia: The General Alumni Society, 1917. Book. Good+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. A hardcover, 1332 page directory of the alumni of this institution and it's various schools (Wharton, Towne, Medical, Dental and so forth), lavishly indexed by school/year/geography. While the book shows it's age a good bit, text darkening, some aging of the expected type, yet sound and as near as I can tell unmarked. There seem to be more than one mild, ancient, moisture stain on the books foredge, and on the spines cloth, fairly minor. Seems to be a slightly more casual look at the alumni than the 1922 version. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.

An American Dictionary Of the English Language

By Webster, Noah

NY: Harper and Brothers, 1849. Book. Fair. Full-Leather. Later Printing, Revised. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. From the title page, " Walker's Key to the classical pronunciation of Greek, Latin and scripture proper names. Revised and enalrged by Chauncey A. Goodrich." 2 notable "flaws" affect the leather binding, a separation at the front hinging of the spines top of nearly 2" and the spine itself has what seems to be a largely superficial cracking at its center, will attempt to show both in foto. The hard leather covers have other age appropriate scarring and abrasion all of a relatively minor nature. Upper tips have abrasion thru leather and lower back tip is notably bumped. The original owner has lightly penciled his name/date (1850) and so forth on the first endsheet and at the top of the title page. While the text has full edge marbling 2 issues are worth mention, top is age or dust darkened and the fore-edge may have had a few unopened leaves which have been opened with slight roughness, leaving imperfections of @ 1/64th". The text approaches heavily foxed and has the swaling (as laid flat it is imperfectly so, hilly) this said, the text does not seem brittle, all is well legible and all is present including the extensive appendixes and advertisements. The paste downs and endsheets show their age predictably, the last p.d. has a small imperfection as though a 1/4" droplet of candle wax was removed and left residue. The book has been stored in acid free glassine bag and will be shipped in same. Massive book over 1152 pages, measures slightly over 9 3/4 x 6 1/2". Will ship, securely padded and boxed, domestic media mail at our customary one book price. As with all items over $75.00 we provide delivery confirmation and insurance at our expense..

An Atlas Of Antient Geography

By Butler, Samuel

Phila PA: Lea & Blanchard, 1850. Book. Fair+. Hardcover. Later Printing. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Delivery confirmation and insurance at our expense. An unusual book with it's sheets done in a style I have rarely seen. Cartographic binding is unfamiliar to me so will describe it to death. Various small notes penciled 1st endsheet, dated 1853. Book measures @ 8 3/4 X 6". Books date is 1850, half bound in leather (spine and diagonals at board tips) with major tip abrasion and bumping. Balance is cloth with center front paper label and plain spine, a bit chipped at top and bottom. Cloth has much age appropriate scar and light stain. Text's index concludes at page 34. TOC lists 21 plates and all are present. The folded sheets of map are laid in at their center and twixt each are the sheet ends. The foxing is hard to describe as it varies from the heaviness of the pastedowns and endsheet to minimal on versos of most of the maps. Certainly some is present on the maps, but rather minimally so. The text is a trifle rumply but only as appropriate to its character and age, an occasional smudge, mark or short tear is present but mildly so. Foto to come shortly..
