Memoirs of the Late Mrs. Susan Huntington of Boston, Mass, by Benjamin Wisner.
Published 1829, Boston by Crocker and Brewster.
328 pages. Text in English. Engraved frontis portrait.

Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, slightly raised & gilt bands, gilt compartment decorations & title lettering, embossed & gilt cover designs, marbled edges and end papers.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Of particular note for the very nice period full leather binding

Binding gently rubbed and age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly scuffed but still supple, tiny chip at spine head, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical (title & frontis darker than the rest), small minor scattered spotting, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this book as it survives. 

We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
