Condition: Book Fine; Box Good


This inspirational book is lovely with its crisp golden binding, thanks to the box which kept it nice. The bottom portion of said box is very sturdy and clean. The lid is also sturdy, but has edge wear and some reglued paper at the top. Book pages are pristine except for one small inscription from a friend of the previous owner marked 1972. I buy these for friends sometimes and add my wishes beneath. It's nice to see both the book and the sentiments. The book coverLoce, joy, Peace, Long Suffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness and Temperance. It measures 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 86 pag... View more info

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Tupelo, Mississippi, Five Star Publishers: 1973

Edition: second print from 1973

Condition: Very Good in Very Good Box


I was surprised to see that this gift book was last published in 2003. The first came off the press in 1968, but this one is still early -- second edition, second printing, 1973. The book is very clean and nice and is in its original silver box. The box shows one small indentation on the front, but the silver outer paper still shines. The only other fault is a blank bookplate used I think to cover a name. Otherwise pristine. The book is based on Christianity and the focus is on living a good life. Text is broken up into many short chapters. Measures 5-3/4" x 8" and has 64 pages. Will ship in U... View more info

Condition: Fine condition


I love books in boxes and this one is so pristine it's amazing. The booklet itself appears to have never been read. It was given as a gift to Ruth and Carl from Harlan with Best Wishes. I like inscriptions because they're part of the book's history. I bought a book in a box at Christmas for a friend and wrote my inscription under the original one -- 100 years later. But getting back to this booklet, the box is sturdy with just a small loss of the outer paper -- about the size of a Tic-Tac. Unlike many marriage books, this one is secular rather than religious, though it does cover in oen chapte... View more info
