About this Item

This 128-page compilation of famed author's writings with accompanying current photographs is a lovely turn-of-the-century travelogue. Containing excerpts from works of Hawthorne, Balzac, Hugo, Irving, Dickens, Dumas, Lanier, Bayard Taylor and Augustus J. C. Hare, this book covers prose and pictures from the following countries: British Isles, France, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Holland, Scandanavia, Germany, Russia, Egypt, China and Japan. Bound in textured gray paper-covered boards with a navy quarter cloth spine. The front cover has navy title printed on the board and a 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" full-color pastedown photo of mountain climbers on a tall jutting glacier tip. Inside hundreds of photos in black and white take the reader on a journey around the world. The page block is stapled in four places. The cover boards inside are bonded to the page block with vertical cloth that runs underneath the staples and underneath the inside covers' pastedown endpapers. Still tight and secure, the cloth has begun to pull away at the bottom back cover staple only. A vertical band of glue discoloration appears on the last page in the gutter margin. The outer navy cloth shows light foxing not migrating inside. Bumps to front board at center bottom edge shows an 1/8" nick. Outer tips are inturned a bit and front lower one is frayed. Scrape along top of back board's top edge has left it rough. Bindery anomaly caused two leaves to retain extra paper causing pp117-120 to be folded inward with diagonal crease and to "stick out" when unfolded. A few additional pages surrounding this also have creases, but pages are fine. No writing and only very light soil to gray boards. Media mail included.
