1-128, [129-140] pages. Oblong hardcover: H 21cm x L 27.25cm. Dark green cloth mildly mottled; touch of flaking to front board's otherwise still bright silver stamped lettering, board corners worn. Edges toned; mostly light soiling scattered throughout with strongest occurrence probably on front endpapers. Binding slightly shaken between front free endpaper and front flyleaf and between rear flyleaf and rear free endpaper; ffep slightly pulled with associated wear along fore-edge; several other lesser stress points to text block which is otherwise firm. Laid-in between pages 88-89 is a typed letter signed on Converse College Alumnae Association stationery to Centreville, Alabama resident dated September 1963 and signed by Executive Secretary Mae Kilgo; several modern ball point ink check marks adjacent to names on page 88 with longer ink mark at fore-edge margin of page 89 photo; no other such markings readily apparent upon a quick perusal. Only a good copy but an early and presumably scarce yearbook for the small Spartanburg, South Carolina liberal arts college for women. Art Nouveau-style b/w illustrations throughout; individual or group b/w photographs of faculty, students, sororities, clubs, sports teams (baseball, tennis, basketball), etc. Concludes with rear unpaged section of advertisements for mostly local businesses catering to college student commerce. Converse College was founded in 1889 and this class annual would be for just the school's tenth year of operation and issued while still under the leadership of its first president Benjamin F. Wilson. {Copy #2}. Bookseller Inventory #
