Beautiful decoratively bound hardcover book with elaborate gilt and black stamping, beveled edges to the covers, and page edges gilt. 10" tall.Beautifully inscribed with gorgeous handwriting, to Miss Mertice A. Wyman, on what must have been her 20th birthday. A second inscription from the same person is on the back as well. The inscription extolls her Christian virtues. Rarely have we seen such clear and beautiful writing in a book.Searching online we have found that Miss Wyman lived in the Oneida New York area, so if you are interested in the local history of that area this would be a perfect book for you.The spine has much wear to one corner, and a small area of white stains at the top corner. Otherwise condition is good.
