Yes my page is exactly that face page but my cover is dark green cloth hard back with pressed scrolls and gold text on the spine.
Hi, Does the books binding look likes its been replaced or recovered because the first editions of this book are calf leather? Thanks Mike

I think it may be a second edition then as it has an Advertisement to the second edition in it.
It had etched in the pressing Colton & Jenkins Binders
I was given the impression it was a first American addition ??
Sorry I want to send images but I can't seem to add them.

Thank you Mike
Hi, No I'm not allowed to buy anything from customers even that I have my own shop. You have to post a new question but you can put my name at the front of your question and I'll try to help you with those books. Thanks Mike

Can you help me to sell the book, I am not greedy so a nice lower than value price is all I would want as I can't see anyone would want to buy it at the possible valuation price.
Thank you
Hi, Sorry it is against company policy to sell customers items plus I live in the USA. Thanks Mike
