Description / Comments:
Size: 4to. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Blue illustrated wraps, deckle edges, xi, [1], 66 pages, one of 5000 copies, Bibliography, 32 illustrations from drawings by B. F. Williamson, Everard A. McAvoy, and Craig Belcher. Wraps are soiled and stained, chipped along edges because they extend beyond the textblock, damp stain runs along the bottom edge of textblock through page xi then disappears, reappears page 61 through to the end, four small finger smudges in blank margin page 64, three name stamps from a local school library on rear endpaper (only evidence of ex-library status). All of this sounds worse than it really is; interior is in very nice condition. “Three romantic stories are briefly sketched within the pages of this little book ? the unique story of America’s oldest existing settlement within the original thirteen colonies, the romance of the Mutual Savings Bank movement in America, and the history of that particular one of America’s five hundred forty-three institutions for savings which has been fortunate enough to contribute in a small way to the growth and development of that city and that movement.” Quantity Available: 1.
