This book is in exceptional antique condition, its only issue is that the staples have become loose & separated from cover at center of book. THIS BOOK IS EXTREMELY RARE! I finally found ONE OTHER COPY on WORTHPOINT. I took the description above directly from their web page on this book. Before there are any records that can be found of it.This copy was given to me by my great-grandmother, who received it from her Mother. My great- grandmother came to America from Scotland in the early 1900s. From pet free, nonsmoking home. See my other antique Christmas books for sale!
