Lives of Celebrated American Indians, by Samuel Griswold Goodrich.
Published 1843, New York, by J. M. Allen. (Apparently a scarce variant imprint for a book more often seen with a Boston imprint).
315 pages. Engraved frontispiece and half title protected by original tissue guard, numerous pictorial chapter end pieces and full page portrait wood engravings throughout.
Publisher's cloth binding, gilt spine lettering, embossed cover decoration.
Binding remains uncommonly clean, tight, and sound, small minor chipping to spine head, otherwise a fresh looking antiquarian book, nicer than typical for the era.
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina. Despite wear, still an overall clean, fresh and nice looking antiquarian book.
It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
