1900 1st Edition Book - Goops And How To Be Them By Gelett Burgess In Nice Shape:
We recently purchased all of the books from a book store (Alibi Books in New Haven, CT) that closed in 1988. All of the books were stored in sealed boxes in a controlled Environmentsince 1988so they are in the same condition as they were in 1988, no mold, mildew, or smells. Many of the books were new at the time so are still new. Others were used/collectible books at the time, some of them increased in value since then and others became common after the Internet emerged.
This item is part of that1988 inventory.
Goops And How To Be Them, A Manual of Manners for Polite Infants, by Gelett Burgess. Published by Methuen in 1900. This is a first edition hardcover book and measures about 8 1/2" x 7" with about 100 unnumbered pages. The date 1900 is on the title page with no other edition mentioned, which for this publisher means it is a first edition. The book is in overall GOOD condition. The cover has only a little bit of wear and retains most of its original brightness, the binding is okay but with some of the signatures separating, and the pages are in good shape and have light intermittent foxing throughout and moderate foxing on the end pages. There is some writing in pencil by the prior bookseller on the first blank page including their 1988 price of $195.00.
