Book measures 7 5/8" (19.4 cm) x 5 1/8" (13.0 cm).
Considering the age of the book - over 100 years old - it is in very good to excellent condition. All pages are intact & sewn, attached to the binding and no tears with the exception of the illustration page. It is no longer attached to the book but is in fine shape & included in the book. There is some minimal foxing on pages surrounding illustration. The covers are good; corners are slightly bent. Top and bottom of the spine are slightly bent. It does have a slight musty smell and is now stored with baking soda & a sweetgrass sachet.
I do have other titles of this set by O.Henry. Titles of the entire set are: "Heart of the West"; "The Trimmed Lamp"; The Gentle Grafter"; Sixes and Sevens"; The Four Million"; Whirligigs"; Rolling Stones"; Strictly Business"; Options"; Cabbages and Kings"; and "Roads of Destiny." If you are interested in any of these please contact me & if not already listed (or sold) I’ll set up a listing for you.
This book would be a great addition to any vintage library!!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!
