The Waumbek and Cottages in the White Mountains, Jefferson, N.H.
Published/ printed c. 1910, New York by Dempsey & Carroll.
12 pages plus wrapper covers. Text in English.
Publisher's oblong photographic pictorial paper wrappers.
A very scarce early 20th century White Mts. summer resort promotional booklet. Intended to entice vacation tourists. With a well printed rotogravure type image of visitors on their horses. Almost certainly issued in modest numbers for such a small-ish operation, one can only guess at how few survive, we surmise perhaps a handful, if that.
Item is old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper covers age worn, slight rubbing, remains overall clean and attractive as a fragile survival.
Text block paper is toned, signs of handling, small scattered spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce pamphlet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
Covers measures c. 5 1/4" H x 7 1/2" W.
