ITEM #051707

This is a hard to find book, "The American Girl" by Howard Chandler Christy. First Edition dated 1906. The American Girl as seen and portrayed by Howard Chandler Christy 1906 Moffat, Yard and Company New York, printed by William H Wood New York.

Book is hardback and measures 9 3/4" by 7 1/2" and is over an inch thick with 157 pages plus over 30 prints. I wish I could have shown you more, as they are all so stunning.

Condition: I am not a book person, so I will comment on what I see and say for an antique it is good to fair condition. All of the pages are still intact, but the cover is starting to come apart as seen in last photo. There is fading,spots and the piece of paper missing on the front. The corners are rounded and the pages are starting to yellow with age. I found no writing in book. If you need more information on condition please ask.

Upon research, I found this book to go for as high as $400, in mint condition, of course.

Book will be treated as any other item in my shop and will be mailed priority with tracking and insurance.
