Here is a very old, and very well-used book, an elementary speller printed in 1873.
There is an inscription on the inside cover stating “Sept 22, 1887, If this chances to rome, give it a kick and send it home.” Written by Willie H. Bittner, in very beautiful cursive script, he has also adorned several pages with his full signature, obviously very proud that he could read and write. It is very well-used, as evidenced by light stains, writing and general wear throughout, but is still in amazingly good condition for something pushing 150 years of age.
It measures 5 inches by 7 1/4 inches, and being a smidge over 1/2 inch thick, it holds over 190 pages.
