Up for your bidding consideration:
Vintage Book,used, Revised Handbook for Boys [ First Edition ] Thirty-second Printing, 1940. Two Hundred Thousand Copies. Boy Scouts of America. Handbook For Boys. Published by The Boy Scouts of America. Incorporated February 8, 1910, under the laws of the District of Columbia. Chartered by Congress, June 15, 1916. 2 Park Avenue, New York, N.Y. Book measurements are, 4 5/8' by 7' by 3/4' inch thick.
Book cover is worn, both front and rear covers have either cracks, creases or tears. I think you can tell by the photos. Cover is not attached, but I did not want to try to reattach it, I figured the buyer would want to do that. Inner pages are discolored. Inner pages are in fairly good condition; they are yellowed and the first few pages have the bottom right corner turned up and there is possibly a little water(?) staining on the first several pages. Also, there is a name written on the very first page, I think you can see it in the photo, although it is fairly faint. There are 676 pages in this printing of the book. For the age of this book (68 years), I think it is in pretty good condition!
I think this would be an interesting addition for a collector.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Thank you so much for looking!
