1888 Open Secrets by Lucy A Bennett Illustrated E & J B Young & Co NY
An interesting and rare copy of Open Secrets by Lucy A Bennett. Fully illustrated throughout, the book publishing marks say Castell Brothers London, E.C. and New York E & J B Young & Co so I believe this was exported for the U.S. market. Printed in Bavaria. The book is a printing of poetry with each poem having a related illustration. It is undated, but was printed in 1888. Leather bound book, leather dried out. Thick pages. The book is all original, and not a rebound version. An honest antique book circa 1880's time period.
Jacket: N/A or None
Binding: Fair to Good
Pages: Very Good
Notable issues: Spine is damaged and has old tape holding it together. Covers are probably fair, with darkening chipping and shelf wear. Inner first page is glued to the front cover but has separated from the bound main content. Because the spine is damaged, the content pages are not attached to the spine. The pages themselves are overall very good condition with minor chipping & tanning with some foxing typical of books printed in the 1800's.
