Title: SEVEN YEARS' STREET PREACHING IN SAN ...
Publisher: New York: Carlton and Porter, 1857
Publication Date: 1857
Illustrator: Fronispiece Engraving of Author
Book Condition: Fair
Edition: 1st Edition
Dated 1857 on title page with no statement of any subsequent printings (in the thousands). Early gold rush era San Francisco material, if from the viewpoint of a preacher who was not happy with the city's morals. The cloth in still quite nice condition because it was laminated at one time to preserve it. Title and decoration on spine still bright and the cloth basically unchipped. Covers blindstamped with corner wear. Front joint cracked up lower one fourth. Contents complete and quite clean, but the binding has partially come apart. Several sections of pages at the front of book no longer glued to the underlying binding material, and a few of the sections of pages in middle of book have sprung from the string holding all together. But all pages still present and holding together at least in sections. Could be repaired somewhat with a regluing, but will leave that decision to the future owner who might prefer a more professional restoration. Frontispiece portrait of author is tissue protected but is nevertheless lightly foxed as typical for frontispiece plates of the era. Old small ink stain on outer edge of front blank endpapers has affected the edge of the frontispiece engraving as well. Not serious. Original brown colored first and last endpapers still present at front and back. Bookseller Inventory # 1607
