THE RED TRUE STORY BOOK (in Original 1895 - Lang, Andrew - 1895. 
London: Longmans, Green, 1895. Lang, Andrew. THE RED TRUE STORY BOOK. Illustrations by Henry J. Ford. London: Longmans, Green, 1895. A Very Fine copy in original publisher's red cloth decorated in gold, all edges gilt and blazing bright -- this copy having been protected by its original dust jacket for well over a century. The DJ (included) is partially complete with tape mends on the reverse; but its survival has helped the book look almost as new more than 100 years later. There is one tiny blemish to the cloth spine but otherwise there is no fault to this remarkable survival. Ford's pre-Raphaelite-inspired drawings (many dozens of them) bring these true stories of historical valor to life. . First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Fine/Good to Very Good. Illus. by Henry J. Ford.
