Hello All,

Here is an unusual copy of Van Loon, ANCIENT MAN, a B&L, with no dust jacket, 
stated First Impression.  There is moderate to light edgewear, and the spine 
is weak between pp. 18 & 19, though it could easily be reglued nicely.  The 
owner's name and address are written on the front pastedown.

The unusual feature is that there is a row of small, tight, machine-made 
stitches in the leatherette down the middle of the front cover.  It must have been 
a joint between two rolls of the material.  The stitches match the cover 
color, and the gilt logo was stamped on top of the stitches.  The back cover is 
normal.  Maybe this item got past the inspector.  In any event it perhaps gives 
bit of insight into the manufacturing process.

We are offering it at $17.50 plus $5.00 shipping.  Thanks for your attention!
