About this Item

Book itelf is very handsome -- decorative pictorial cover is clean and bright and book is tightly bound with no names or writing. Pages have toned, more at title page than elsewhere, perhaps due to the handsome color plate across from it. Illustrated with black and white art in text. A 1925 Christmas gift inscription appears at top of front free endpaper reading, "To ---------- From Mother. Christmas, 1925." I have never seen this book with a jacket, but though it has some issues, it's completely intact and has not even been price-clipped. Faults are chipping at bottom and top of spine and on three corners at front, primarily the outer lower one, soiling to back cover impervious to cleaning, a few small tears and some blue ink on front where small owner filled in the "empty" parts of a few letters in the title. Nonetheless, it looks respectable in brand new mylar. 318 swashbuckling pages!. Bookseller Inventory # 27119

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!
