Good+ Spine is rubbed, lettering, 'tho no longer bright, is readily legible. Whatever caused a small, sharp dent in surface of the front cover has also caused a small dent in the first few pages. Front cover's bottom fore corner is worn through to the board, else minor wear and soil on the sound binding. Contents are clean and unworn. This is one of those cases where I wish the system allowed for separate condition ratings for the binding and the contents, in that this binding is only Good, but the contents are Very Good.; 8-1/2" Tall, 128ppl green cloth, gold lettering. POETRY. INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY AUTHOR. Mr. Coffin's poetry actually RHYMES! There is a hand-written poem, "None of Mine, "entered on the half-title page, which is obviously also by Coffin but I cannot tell if he wrote it in the book, or someone else did. The poems are similar to those by Edgar A. Guest, in that they rhyme and are about the simple things in life, uplifting and rather sentimental with a touch of humor. Drawings throughout text.
