Fiftieth Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg
Report of the Pennsylvania Commission 1913
This book captures the battle 50 years afterwards - full of fold out photos and pictures - obtained from an estate in Gettysburg, PA.
Hard cover - back spine and connections to the front and back cover boards is in need of repair - the paper over the spine has come loose from the adhesive and is flaky
The corners on the cover boards show some wear bur are still intact and not mashed in - three of the 4 corners still have good edges and the 4th is slightly suppressed
No cut or missing pages and no staining or writing inside.
Outer Page dust / grime from being stored for 105 years - the gold coloring on the outer edges of the pages at the top of the book are still gold
the faint scent of cedar and mothballs also lingers, like a ghost from the past flitting amongst the monuments at the battlefield
There are a lot of flod outs, illustrations, photos and and even a huge map of the veterans camp - i suspect that there may have been more or room for additiinal inserts - however I cannot see how the book could have closed with any more folded photos in it
This is a really rare book - while the cover spin is not in the best condition, the pages are and the binding remains patent - pages are not falling out. As a collection piece modified repair (such as glue to spine paper) can be performed by the owner, or more professionally restored to keep for display / valued collection. These tomes do appear for sale from time to time, some at extremely high prices and others sneak by all bit unnoticed (fortunate for the lucky buyer).
