About this Item

Decorative blue buckram cover w/gold lettering on spine in poor condition due to water damping, discoloration, probable mold, and some light silverfishing on edges. Gift inscription and 1873 date in ink on ffep has an inch by half inch hole. Foxing front and back end papers. From the description thus far it would not seem that the book is worth either selling or buying except that the interior is actually in pretty good shape; and the book would appear to be of historical interest. From preface: "Many of the letters in this volume first appeared in the New York 'Commerial Advertiser,' but with others, they are now presented in a changed and highly improved form. Topics include descriptions of a steam boat trip up the Hudson, steeple chase, General Sherman, The Battle of Saratoga, etc. 200 photo-etchings by Arthur Lumley. Interior has no marks, pages are supple, and binding still sound. 249 pp. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 001945

Shipping Terms:

International shipping is problematic. Unfortunately, the abebooks matrix is inappropiate. Costs except to Canada, which is a bit cheaper, do not depend upon country, but upon the weight of the book. I try to ship anywhere, but I must break even on shipping costs. Any book and package under one pound will generally ship via International First Class Mail at the standard shipping rate of about $15.50 depending upon country. Books over one pound (454 grams) usually must ship via Priority Internatinal Flat Rate Mail at $24.50 (the Post Office charges me $23.95, so I'm not trying to gouge the customer. If you order shipping at the higher rate, and I can ship it for less because it weighs less than one pound, I will give you a partial refund. Books over four pounds in weight, or oversize (generally about folio size), are extraordinarily expensive to ship internationally; but if interested, I will work with you to make such shipments possible. I apologize for the inconvenience that sometimes results from the limitations on international shipping. The costs are going up at an alarming rate, and until someone brings back merchant sailing ships, I don't know the solution.
