Book Description S. M. Betts & Company, 1872. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. This offering is an older copy of Eminent Women of the Age; Being Narratives of the Lives and Deeds of the Most Prominent Women of the Present Generation written by James Parton, Horace Greeley and many others and "Richly Illustrated with Fourteen Steel Engravings." The book was published by S. M. Betts & Company in 1872 and appears to be a Second Printing but is not specifically stated as such. It is not an ex-library copy but is only in good condition with worn leather boards and a spine that wants to break from the binding. I have shored it up and it is still very readable as well as being collectible. The book is 6" by 8 7/8" by 2" and has 628 pages with a Table of Contents and the fore-mentioned illustrations. Thank you!. Seller Inventory # 008215
