About this Item

This First Edition, First State with the title page having the author's name incorrectly spelled as H. S. Wells, needs professional cleaning and restoration. The book was stored in a carton in a garage and mildew has affected the carton's contents. There are whitish blotches and some smaller dark spots to both covers and the spine. The spine's title is still mostly readable. Mildew has also been deposited on the upper edges of the pages. I have used both a dampish cloth and a dry cloth which does help to remove the mildew from the pages, but I will leave it for a professional restorer. The book is tightly bound in a beige buckram cloth, with well attached covers. Both the covers and the spine have very good, unworn edges. There is an owner's bookplate on the front inner cover. Lacks the tissue guard in front of the frontispiece illustration. Pagination: Frontpaper, half-title, list of books in Henry Holt's Buckram series, back of frontispiece, frontispiece illustration, Title Page with the bottom of the page reading "New York / Henry Holt And Company / 1895", Copyright page, Author's Note, (blank), Contents, (blank), pages 1-216 (with page one not numbered, the numbering starting with page two), (blank leaf), 6 pages of publisher's advertising, endpaper. There is a small piece of paper lacking from the bottom of the endpaper. Except for the mildew, the pages are clean and crisp. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 15487
