- ONE vintage book titled The History of Notable American Houses, published in 1971 by the American Heritage Publishing Co. Includes storage box as shown in photos.
The book is in very good vintage condition, with overall wear consistent with age and use. The hardback book has a maroon cloth cover, is clean with clear graphic; no tears or folding noted. Pages show mild tanning at the top due to age. The storage box appears to have been chewed in two corners by a puppy as shown in the last photo. The actual book is unaffected by the chewing.
