This is a collection of seven different Horatio Alger Jr. books all circa 1890-1905. These are all complete; however, these are fair to good overall in condition - nothing stellar here but still good reading material! Each is app. 7.5"x5" with hard-covers. There is corner, edge, spine wear and bumping and cloth wear to spine tips and edges. There is soiling to some covers. There is no mildew, sticking, or smells. We do have two books the same (#7 & #8 below), but did not count the duplicate in the total as this one is in the worst shape and a duplicate. It will be sent with the others.
