About this Item

Well, this one is a heart breaker. The pages up to page 27 have been roughly detached/broken from the book block. The print is incomplete on the detached pages, and although it appears it is still present in the page fragments still bound, the paper is so brittle that the book could probably not be read unless rebound. A couple of other pages are torn out in the book, but all seem to still be present. There is also penciling on several pages. The gilt lettering on the spine is still pretty good. A portrait of Lincoln has crumpled tissue cover, other illustrations do not; so I don't know if they are missing or were never present. Although I hate the idea, this may be a candidate for breaking to salvage the illustrartions. Then again, maybe a book binder could perform a miracle. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
