By: Goldsmith, Oliver

Price: $200.00

Quantity: 1 available


A scarce braille "New York Point" edition of Goldsmith's famous poem, from an obscure printer. Brown cover lettering on stapled brown wraps, unpaginated (21). Library sticker to inside front cover, library embossed seal (dated 1914) to top right corner of first page, library pocket to inside back cover (numbered-but-otherwise-blank slip of stiff paper inserted into pocket suggests that book may never have been taken from the library). Moderate edgewear, short edge tears, some scraping to spine, moderate general wear. Some pages have a bit of crinkling at fore-edge (a result of the printing process). All in all a presentable copy of a scarce item for the blind. [C/BT]
