A rare book in an above-average state of preservation given its age and elusiveness. There is a slight bend or two to the cover, and light foxing throughout, but no significant detractions. Principally, all of the pages are fully intact and clearly readable. The inscription JAMES BENJAMIN NO 14 WATER STREET CINCINNATI OHIO SEPTEMBER 15TH, 1868 is present on the first page, and a similar inscription has also been handwritten on the last page.
