All of my books are VERY OLD and have wear. Boards & text very secure.
Some of the pages hadn't been cut apart when bound, leading to some rips. There are a few rips and one really bad one taped with doc.
1 page with edge missing [no text missing] - might have come this way new. Last picture shows a small "patch" job. The pages are all remarkably clean -only a few light spots. There is a library stamp on the front pastedown, the ffep, the preface, and at chapter 1 - NO library pockets, #'s on the spine, or anything on the title page.I think it came from a church library. ISLAND LOVERS -grab it before it floats on out of here! Please Add me to your Favorites list. AND check back now and then to see what's new! Otherwise I can't send you a new invoice.
T can take up to 14 days to get back East [rare, but it does happen] I use. This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke]. Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to.
So the old book smell doesn't bother me. As far as I can tell -this book has no bad smell.The item "ANTIQUE PACIFIC ISLANDS HAWAII NEW ZEALAND FIJI TAHITI + PAGANS vs MISSIONARY" is in sale since Sunday, May 20, 2018.
