I know you’ve all seen the “chocolate box” books the F. M. Lupton Publishing Company made back in the 1800s, cheaper versions of what A. Mame and Company was making in France at the same time.
I have one for sale.
John Halifax “Gentleman”, by Miss Mulock. Ascribed copyright 1897 for original F.M. Lupton edition (which is what this is).
Good condition, some wear to cover, some wear to spine top and bottom edges. Yellowing pages but reasonably tight-ish spine. One aged bookworm hole in bottom of pages (1/8″).
Asking $12 plus $3.05 for Book Rate shipping (unless you’d prefer Priority or live outside the US, in which case we need to talk about shipping prices).
Here are the yummy photos (the spine is less bright green than the photo shows: thank you, iPhone…):
