The Youth's Companion.
Published weekly, 1883, Boston by Perry Mason & Co.
Complete yearly run of this weekly periodical (52 Issues). 562 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout with wood engraved images.

Period 1/2 leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & title lettering, marbled covers.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.

Binding age worn but still appealing, leather rubbed but still supple, joints slightly scuffed, boards surface scuffed, remains overall sound and attractive as an object.

Text block paper is well age toned, first page torn across the middle, various edge flaws or short tears from browsing, internally still well preserved, tight, sound. All the issues show old lines indicating the original owner saved them up from a subscription, then took them to a local book binder in the 19th century to be bound up as a run for permanent referral.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book 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 large heavy 19th century juvenile book survives.

Book Measures c. 16 1/2" H x 11" W.

A large oversize heavy book which is reflected in the shipping cost.
