The book was published in 1911. I bought the book in 1993 from a shop in St Paul that isn't there anymore. I forgot the name, it was on 7th Street. The book was pretty much as you see it. The paper isn't yellowed, it's actually brown Kraft paper, kind of thick, say a 60# text maybe, and the cover is similar but much heavier.
You can see it's been well handled. I'm proud to say none of those stains on the cover are mine. The binding has been failing so I cut the pages out and scanned them.
