I believe most if not all of the articles came from the Lynchburg Virginian newspaper from the late 1800s. There are places in the book that are discolored where the newspaper clippings sat inside the pages for years.There are places in the pages of the book where the edges are torn or missing parts around the edges and corners. The pages are quite delicate, and should be treated as such. This will be packaged with extreme care to ensure no further damage comes to this rare book. See pics for close up details.
