Ulysses S Grant
Personal Memoirs of U S Grant 1885 2 Volume Deluxe Leather Binding
Charles L Webster & Co. Personal Memoirs of U S Grant 1885 2 Volume in the hard to find Deluxe Leather Binding. This 2 volume set is in amazing shape! I will do my best to describe each volume, as I believe they are the one of the finest examples of the deluxe set on the market. Each volume is bound in 3/4 brown moroccon with gilt decorations. The volumes have marbled endpapers. As to the condition, the spine on each volume is tight. The leather does has some rubbing in places (as evidenced in photographs) but does on effect the appeal of the gilding. The boards have only minor defects ( Volume II having 2 small bumps on front cover as evidenced in photo) typical of age including scuffing and slight soiling. Previous owner name written in pencil on front free end flap (A H? Mason December 5. 1885). As for the state of the interior pages, the first few pages on each volume contain slight foxing (evidenced the most on the title pages). Other than the first few pages of slight foxing, the remaining pages in each volume are in impeccable shape. The pages are clean, crisp, and contain no extraneous markings. Only issue I found in examing each volume is a small chip torn out of page 303 in volume 1 (doesn't affect text in any way). I can't stress enough how good the shape of the interior pages are. As a book collector myself, I haven't found anything from the late 19th century in this good of condition. Only selling to pick up other books that fancy my interest. Feel free to contact me if you need more photographs. I will ship Priority Mail insured with delivery confirmation. … [Click Below for Full Description]
