This very interesting small book 'The Parlour Letter-Writer and Secretary's Assistant' was written by R. Turner & published in 1838 by Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co., Philadelphia. The author describes this work as 'consisting of original letters on every occurrence in life, written in a concise and familiar style and adapted to both sexes, to which are added Complimentary Cards, Wills. Bonds etc.' Its copious contents in 288 pages is a veritable time capsule of the early 19th century. The 1st 100 pages are connected with business letters of every sort; the next 50 pages have to do with letters regarding love, courtship & marriage; the next 40 with letters between friends & relations; the next 60 pages are related to letters of advice & then 30 pages of Miscellaneous Letters & finally notes & forms used in law, receipts, wills etc. This text measures 3' x 5 1/2' x 3/4'. It is complete & in good condition with gold embossing on the covers. There is some page foxing throughout which can be expected in books of this age & in no way obscures its legibility. Buyer agrees to pay $5.00 S&H
