Philadelphia, PA Natonal Publishing Company 1870 Hardcover 
This is a hardcover salesman sample in book form that was assembled and bound to be given to a salesman. However, this one is unique as the former owner also used this as a scrap book. The cover is green pebbled cloth with a logo-title on the front cover in gilt. There is a stamped border around the edge and the same design without gilt on the reverse side. This is not the complete book - it only contains sections of the chapters in English and German - by design. The frontispiece, title and copyright page and many sections of chapters are not covered with articles. , Since it was used to sell the book, it includes the sales agreement highlights and conditions of purchase which was paid by subscription for many people. There are some prices in pencil at the bottom right corner of the two page agreements - one in English, another in German. This salesman sample includes three options for a book cover, green or maroon cloth, and leather. Sample spines are pasted down on the end papers. The book contains many clippings that have been pasted in by the former owner. Starting with the map, the front of the map (not entirely) and the the backs of the map have articles pasted down. There are poems, articles, a little news, some announcements, some how-to's, and advice. Examples of some of the articles are: Removing a Lake, Angling an Eyeless Fish, A Dish of Truffles. Most of the pages are clean and crisp - with no pasted downs. There is a frontispiece, title and copyright page, text, sales agreementa that are free of pasted downs. This book is designed to give the potential buyer a physical look at what the buyer could purchase. It is not intended to be a complete book. It appears that portions of the chapters were sewn together and bound into the covers. The cover is sturdy with some corner wear and some scuffing and fading of the color. It has not been restored. The end papers have various names and numbers, plus a tree drawing/scribble. The leather spine sample in the rear has tiny little cut-outs from newspapers that have been pasted down - they are mostly names of cities and little towns. The pages that are not covered with pasted down articles, etc are quite crisp and clean. Some of the articles protrude from the pages creating some rough edges. This sample provides a look at the interests of a former owner who had access to a newspaper or two. This salesman sample comes with a 26 page pamphlet titled Joseph Smith Tells His Own Story. There is a portrait on the cover in half-tone. The paper is darkening. A portion of the paper cover has a closed tear at the spine - below the lower staple. ; 8vo
