About this Item

Book is clean and well-bound with burgundy boards sporting a nice beveled edge to boards and gilt printing to spine. A few small tears to band at bottom of spine, a small bit of corner wear, and light overall foxing to endpapers and at edges of photos. An interesting copy insofar as former owner taped to the book's first blank pages Blount's 1905 death notice and a 1903 notice of Blount's 94th birthday and also laid-in a lengthy obituary, all taken from the London Times. Owner also penciled his own name and noted that the book was a Christmas gift from his mother in 1902. Book relates Blount's experiences in banking (in France) and railroads (in France and England) and his encounters with the great people and events of the day. 308 pages. Book catalogue from publisher at back. Indexed. Bookseller Inventory # 19137

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!
