About this Item

381 pgs. While Josiah Allen's Wife (pen name for Marietta Holley) was a well loved and widely published 19th. Century Novelist, this is the only one of her works that I have found in vintage paperback being offered for sale anywhere on the internent. Natural color HC book has black font on fc and spine. Good overall shape with some shelf wear, spotting, bumped and rubbed corners and spine ends. Curled and chipped corners on fc, some water stains on fc, foxed covers and eps. no foxing of any kind in the text block pages itself. Text is complete with no damaged, missing, or loose pages, unmarked, and odor free, but pages edges are brittle. No DJ as issued. These early paperbacks were designed to be a less expensive way to get reprints of popular or classic works into the hands of the everyday 19th. century person. They used acidic papers and ink, and have not survived the ravages of time nearly so well as their hardcover counterparts. Many titles have no surviving copies of any kind in PB that I have been able to come across as of yet. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001051
