Tightly bound with dark brown binding tape at hinges, neatly and beautifully done, both front and back to match endpapers. Most handsome in clear plastic cover. Copyright date is 1879 and print date is 1880, but gift inscription at first blank page is dated Christmas 1879. Inscription reads "Aubrey C. Bone with his father's love." Author was sent to the Lesser Antilles by the Smithsonian Institution in 1876 primarily to "bring to light their ornithological treasures," but in the end brings back much more. 33 illustrations all of which have been collated and are present.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
