About this Item

A portion of the printed dedication reads: ".a fitting gift to lay on the altar of the Lady of Your Heart". Hard cover has some foxing / age toning around text block and cover edges. Covers otherwise clean and corners still square. Text is printed on high-quality Fabriano paper. (Ms. Scripps founded Scripps College for Women, paid for the establishment of Scripps Memorial Hospital and the San Diego Zoo aviary, and funded the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (etc.).
