Springfield, Illinois: Charles C. Thomas, 1966. Hardcover. Very Good / Good. Item #074540
Tipped in at the front free endpaper is a small card reading "Best wishes, Lucia Fulton". Mrs. Fulton is acknowledged by the editors in the Preface to the Second Edition and in most biographical material about Dr. John F. Fulton as a tremendous support in the creation and revision of this book. The prior owner, given other treatments found in the collection, likely received a greeting card from Mrs. Fulton and clipped the valediction to paste in this book. Crisp, clean pages except for a few scattered, pale brown droplet marks on the page block edges; full cloth cover shows only mild shelf rubbing at corners and spine ends; dust jacket bears two small but conspicuous droplet marks mid-front, age-toning along the spine and uppers, creasing and some edge chipping around the top and at the spine heel and foreedges, and a brief open tear at the top rear, but is otherwise sound and well-kept, now in a clear sleeve. xxvi, 492pp.
