Vintage Book – The Romance of Elaine, by Arthur B Reeve

029  030

Subject / Topic: From the dust cover: “With unusual skill, Mr. Reeve has written in ‘The Romance of Elaine,’ a book in which every page is a thrill and carries the reader breathlessly on from one daring exploit to the next.  It is a fast-moving tale of adventure and hairbreadth episodes.”
Format: Hardcover.
Published:  1916; appears to be a first edition
Inscription Inside:  See photo above; the inscription reads “To ‘Bobs’ with love ‘Bubs’ July 28, 1916”
Condition:  Dust jacket has sustained tearing and other damage, and some of the pages inside were not properly trimmed by the press.  There’s some minor crunching of a few pages that one can see from the bottom of the book.  Otherwise the book itself is in very good shape; the binding is firm.

Price:  Buy-it-now price is $19.95 plus $3.95 shipping & handling (that’s the book – or economy – rate), if not picked up in person.  Opening bid if on eBay is $14.95.
# Available:  one
Defects, Nicks and/or Blemishes: This book is in very good condition.  Any white shading that shows in the photos is from the camera flash and is not seen in the item itself.  Item Location: Cabot Mill Antiques, Fort Andross, 14 Maine Street, Brunswick ME 04011.

Message re Our Products:
All of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned.  Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and described in the photos and/or in person. 
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.  
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you. We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value. 
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
