West Boylston Manufacturing Company.
Published 1914, Massachusetts.
32 pages. Text in English. Oblong format, essentially a book of almost 30 full page well printed roto-gravure images with very little text aside from some sparse basic company info.
Period leather oblong folio album binding, gilt cover lettering.
Given the source and likely local distribution market, undoubtedly a very elusive/ scarce pictorial record of this huge business concern. Much of the building still stands and has been repurposed for modern usages.
Cover edges and spine joints scuffed, corners slightly worn/ chipped although leather remains supple and well preserved, gilt lettering still bright. Binding remains clean, tight, and sound. Interior contents clean and bright. Any age flaws are easy to overlook or forgive.
Contains original owner's label on interior cover: Joseph David Guernsey.
Book measures: 9 3/4" H X 12 1/2" W.
