New York: W.J. Holland, 1893. First Thus. Hardcover. 7 1/2 X 9 7/8 Inches. Very Good. Item #5164
Original salesman's copy of two books - Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan and Child's Life of Christ by Hesba Stretton. Original decorated cloth binding with fold-out sample spines. As with other salesman's copies of this period, the book is littered with engravings and plates describing the finished product that the buyer would recieve. This copy appears to have all but one tipped-in prospectus sheets. A nice example and a wonderful conversation piece.
