This paperback book, ADVENTURES OF AN OLD MAID, by Belle C. Greene, was copyrighted in 1886 by J. S. Ogilvie Publishing Company, 57 Rose Street, New York. It is a No. 161 Sunset Series book. It is the story of 'Aunt Ruth', told in first person, about the life she's had in her travels, experiences with family and other people and her general philosophy on life itself. It is written in what could be considered 'back woods dialect', and filled with much humor. There are several cartoon-like illustrations throughout the book. As with paperback books of today, the back section of the book has several pages of advertisements for other books popular at that time. Except for some very small tears and stains on the front cover, the book is in good condition. The first page also has a stain around the edge. Because of the age of the book, all the pages are somewhat yellow but legible. Excluding the advertisment pages in the back of the book, there are 183 story pages.
