A Child's Life of Christ.

Original pictorial dust jacket, very scarce thus. Binding remains in almost like-new condition- clean, tight, and sound. Dust jacket edge chipped, small archival tape repairs along joints, still largely clean and in amazing condition given the fragility of it.
Interior contents display a pleasing age patina, largely free of age spotting.
Early owner's gift inscription. Owner's stamp: Clarence H. Wilcox.
Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
