About this Item

Large hardcover in fair condition: spine ends frayed and boards exposed at lower corners, first three pages loose (endpaper, endpaper, frontispiece), as is one of the other three illustrations--all pages present. 110 pages, with 62 different signatures on the Birthday Book, and seven individuals have completed the "Confession" pages. Fan design on the front cover, with bright gilt decoration, and bright gilt lettering on the spine. The gift inscription on the front endpaper is dated 1884 and refers to "Wallace Hall", presumably the Scottish school (since this book was published in Glasgow. I could not find a list of Nineteenth Century Wallace Hall graduates, to compare names. [2 lbs]. Bookseller Inventory # 59153

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
