Vintage 1948 Huckleberry Finn Book, Mark Twain Story Book, Decorative Green Gold Library Book, Illustrated Junior Text, Collectible Books

$100.00 $125.00

The book is in decent condition. There is some discoloration and wear showing on the book. The spine is hard to read. Books such as the Illustrated Junior Library were sometimes embellished with colorful and rich details. Over time the embellishments begin to change. That could be the case with this book. Regardless, it is a gorgeous book with its very old age. However, it would probably not be a good daily reader.

The decorative possibilities for this book range from adding it to a growing list of powerful and moving books in one's personal library to placing it on the coffee table to draw the kids attention away from tablets and phones. Perhaps one of the greatest ways to display this book would be to purposely put it in a place where parent and child alike could look on and discuss the story of Huckleberry Finn. This is the sort of treasure that would work perfectly in a wall-hanging glass-covered shadow box.

The collector will appreciate this book for the author and the title.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you insure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The manufacture or year-it-was-made is an estimate based upon experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I am very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description on an item you are interested in please contact me.

***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
