An American Anthology: 1787-1900

By Edmund Clarence Stedman

This antiquarian book is in fair condition. The front, back and spine of the cover boards are extremely worn as well as the edges on all sides of the cover boards and the bumping is so bad on the corner of the front cover board the corner is missing. The pages are yellowed and tanned, and there are no marking on the pages.The binding is cracked on the inside of the cover boards.
