- ONE antique pocket book titled The Butterfly Guide ( as shown)
Good antique condition with overall wear consistent with age and use. The pages show discoloration, marks and freckling. Front and back cover shows minor bending from use. The binding has partially separated from the pages, though pages remain intact. The color plates showing butterflies are clear and bright. Not bad for a book that is over 100 years old!
- Materials: paper, ink, fabric
- Color: black, cream, gold plus various color plates
