Here is a nice 1st Edition author signed 2 volume set of History Books about Pennsylvania for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself!
We were just able to pick up a number of books and prints/posters that were in the personal collection of a book store owner from PA whom is no longer with us. These items will be posted in our store over the next few days.
Very nice set of 1st Edition history books here. This 2 volume set is entitled, "Old Time Notes of Pennsylvania". The books were written by A K McClure. This set is the autograph edition and does actually have the actual autograph of the author in place. The books were published by the John Winston Company of Philadelphia in 1905. This book set was #98 of 1,000 books in this limited edition, author signed version.
The green hardcovers are attached to the books. Nice colored impressed emblem on the front of each book. The two books have their dust covers in place. Some minor cracking along the spine. Pages of each volume are still securely bound together. A previous owner's stamp is in the front of the book. Gold gilt on the top of the open pages. The pages are rough cut on the bottom and side, not gilted.
Some wear and discoloration to the covers and spine, most notably at the edges. Little to no foxing or brown spotting to any of the books. Some minor soiling in places. The book's pages are all intact, no tears, missing pages, or repairs.
The back of the first volume has a gouge in it that goes thru the dust cover and into the back cover of the book. Some minor browning of the books' pages. Some minor loss of some of the ends of pages in places. No mold, tobacco, or mildewy smell. A dusty smell to the books.
