We obtained the book from the grandson of the original owner along with others in the same series, some of which are rare. These volumes are a great historical record and have given us a wonderful experience of armchair / time travel c. 1905! While the time has come to part with some of our favorite books, we are not book dealers so if you have any questions or would like more photos, please e-mail us. This book and its companion volumes would make a wonderful addition to your library! Please search our shop for more great volumes in this series.
