A rare book, The Catholic Letters, deemed so as I have not been able to find this book other than as reproduced, in a library or as a download...written by E H Derby (Elias Hasket Derby), copyright 1856, published by John P Jewett & Company, Jewett, Proctor & Worthington, Sheldon, Blakeman & Company...the book begins with a 17 year old boy who decides to apply to a Roman Catholic Bishop for baptism..he informs the author who then begins writing letters to the boy to discourage him from doing so...my understanding is that the boy was the author's son...the book contains 20 letters, I have taken photos of the contents which includes 12 of the letters...

hard back cover displays wear, corner bumps, shelf wear to top & bottom spine with very top of the spine area missing, spine is strong, all pages are attached...book is complete, contains 293 pages....interior pages are nice, pages have foxing & age toning but not bad..inside front cover is newspaper article attached and a paper label, first blank page has 2 names, one in pencil...the next blank page has personal writing concerning the book(see 3rd photo), no tears or creasing noted...book measures 8" X 5 1/4" wide...great book to add to your collection..
