OK, so this has a date of 1926 on the inside of the cover and I am in awe. Though there is some wear on the box, the book itself is in great condition. The images and colour are amazing.
"Because of You" an antique gift book of poetry, by Lawrence Hawthorne.
Published in 1926 by Buzza Co., "Craftacres", Minneapolis, Minnesota. Looks like the original publication.
This 5.25 X 6.25 in. hardcover contains 12 pages of beautiful, colour illustrated verse. Each leaf consists of french folded sheets (they're double-paged). Comes in its original, matching box, with the title on one side. Very good condition. There's wear to the spine ends, but the book is otherwise clean and unmarked and tightly bound together.
The top half of the box has a couple of small tears, one in a corner and the other along one side. The box is still sturdy and intact.
