Now to this fine item:
What a find!
Electricity in society and in the home was in its absolute infancy when this book was published.
Homes and streets had gaslamps. (The lamplighter was the fellow who lit the gas street lamps each evening and turned them off in the morning). The many changes of the 20th century were just beginning . . .
But this book is not as a 'display feature' on the bookshelf, as the cover boards are extremely scruffy and warped. The spine is not much better, having clearly been repaired at the edges!
Also, the first two blank pages immediately within have 2" x 1" damage to top corner.
Now the better news!
The substantial 277pg page-block within is entirely sound and the open pages are clean and entirely respectable. The closed block has a minor edge stain.
To be clear, this book is, very precious. It is very old. It is also very tired.
And, for the right buyer, something oh!-so-interesting and, indeed, precious to own.

ATTENTION U.S. BUYERS
Due to heightened border protection and increased aviation security measures introduced by the US Government applying to inbound freight, there is likely to be delays of around 48 hours to parcels being sent to the US. These new security measures have increased cost implications associated with screening and transport, and as a result a $9 surcharge will be imposed on all parcels over 500 grams destined for the US.
This surcharge has been introduced solely to cover the costs of the revised security arrangements required by the United States, and neither Australia Post nor this seller profit from the surcharge.
The surcharge does not apply to other overseas countries.
BUYERS PLEASE NOTE, also, that it is expected that PAYMENT is made within FIVE DAYS unless an arrangement has been made with us prior to bidding. For example, if you anticipate bidding on another of our listed items.
If NO CONTACT has been made in this time, in fairness to other Ebay users, Ebay will be notified that you have defaulted. Please DO NOT bid if you cannot meet these fair and simple requirements.
Should an unforseen difficulty arise, then PLEASE LET US KNOW. We are very understanding. But, of course, we are not mind, readers. Thank you for your interest. Good luck if you bid!
