Great reading in this 1836 book, A Young Man's Guide, by William A Alcott...book is packed full of information for the young man in those days long long ago.. this book was written for the purpose of the formation of character in the young men so to render them worthy, useful and happy...to improve the mind, manners & morals, as well as proper management of business...bringing into light the failings of unworthy amusements & bad habits..and making special emphasis on marriage....see photos 4-9 for most of the "table of contents",the last page of contents is not shown which covers "Diseases of Licentiousness"(immoral conduct) plus an additional chapter which covers choice of friends, rudeness of manners and self-praise/egotism...

hard back cover is very nice for its age, some wear mostly to edges, corner bumps..book is solid, spine is strong, all pages attached, end pages have darkened somewhat...book is complete, contains 360 pages....interior pages have light color foxing and age toning, very readable...light soiling, finger smudges, no tears or creasing noted...inside front board and first black page have some inscriptions, one in pencil from mother...inside back board and back blank page has some doodling...book measures 6 1/4" X 4" wide...great book to add to your collection..
