Clarksburg, VA Joseph Israel 1831 First Edition Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
This is a hardcover leather bound book in calf. The binding is tight with strong hinges and corners. The title on the spine is worn or missing the leather band for the title - a hint of the title remains as a blind stamp. The end papers are worn and foxed and show faint writing or ciphering as do the last two pages and end papers - names, dates, and faintly readable - pencil.. The pages of the book are uniformly age discolored with faint to heavy foxing.. The edges are darkened as are the tips of the edges - well read, but carefully handled because of the secure binding. There are three introductory chapters of 38 pages, eighteen chapters, a four page contents list in text paragraphs, and an advertisement by the publisher which is actually background information with caveats. This last page has a tear. The front end paper is missing, there is a blank leaf. At the rear, the verso of the Advertisement is blank, there is blank leaf, and end paper. There is a water line at the bottom of the rear advertisment and blank leaf. Howes W601.; 12mo; 319 pages; From 495
