Good. SIGNED and inscribed by the author. Shelf and handling wear to cover and binding, with general signs of previous use. Cloth is lightly rubbed overall. Moderately tanned spine. A small dampstain at the base of the spine is apparent in the textblock in the corners of the first 30 pages. A travelog of a trip to France by Senator Willard Saulsbury and his then-wife. Inscribed by the author, who was the daughter of Victor du Pont and the ex-wife of William du Pont (who, in turn, being the son of General Henry du Pont, was also her first cousin), to Josephine du Pont, the widow of Victor DuPont. So, this is a unique assocation copy, tying together members of this influential American dynasty. Secure packaging for safe delivery.
