"Famous Authors and Best Literature of England and America" edited by William Birdsall and Rufus Jones. Published by American Book and Bible House, 1897.
Thick anthology filled with illustrations. 10 inches by 8 inches with 552 pages, this book offers the best prose and poetry of this era's most well-known authors.
Wear and soil to the covers with a bit of fading, interior shows a few spots but pages are generally clean. Binding shows some weakness at the rear, but all pages are holding tight. There is a full color presentation page that was filled in by the previous owner. Full color frontispiece featuring Longfellow.
