Hymns for Christian Devotion: Specially Adapted to the Universalist Denomination. By J.G. Adams and E.H. Chapin.
Published 1847, Boston by Abel Thompkins.
642 pages. Text in English. With early owners name stamp and signature of Sumner Putnam, Greensboro, Vt. with what seems to be a related card for the Church of the Messiah in Montpelier, Vt.
Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands, gilt title lettering on contrasting black leather label, embossed cover decorations.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding age worn but still appealing, front joint cracked, front cover loosened and held by binding cords, leather scuffed and rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, 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 they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.
