About this Item

Minor edge and corner wear to the dj, lightly scuffed and scratched, corners are gently bumped and rubbed, some light shelf wear, overall a very crisp and clean used first edition! Wonderfully well-preserved! Tan cloth with blue stamped lettering on the front board and spine. Dj is nicely preserved in a brand new protective mylar plastic cover! 217 very clean unmarked and uncreased historical pages nicely enhanced by black and white photographs and illustrations! "Big cities may be small towns on a large scale, but it is equally true to say that small towns are big cities on a little scale: a cross section of the rich and the poor, of the mighty and the humble, of the vicious and the virtuous. However, in the country town, each individual bears a dignity that is unknown in the large city; the small number of citizens gives to each individual an importance that seems always to come with precious things in little packages. In this respect, Amboy, Illinois, is not unique, but typical of the hundreds of villages that have mushroomed over the State of illinois in the past century and ahalf. Situated about ninety miles west of Chicago and endowed with all the blessings of a country town, at one time Amboy gave every prospect of an unlimited growth and development sufficient to rival many another city of Northern Illinois." Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 035222
