Seller ID: 190520P

Condition: Very Good


This is quite a find, as this is a book that was NEVER used! The original copyright date is 1952, but I would say this book was published in the later 1950's. This book has obviously been sitting on a shelf for the last 60+ years! Binding is super tight and pages are crisp and clean. Inside text is literally in Excellent to Like New condition- I think I am the only one to open this book! Obviously, no marks or writing in the book. Outside cloth covers are very nice with just a touch of corner wear and some fading to the outside spine- probably from shelf wear. No Dust Jacket, but I do not beli... View more info
