18 Price, Lee & Co. PRICE, LEE & CO.'S METAL TRADES DIRECTORY FOR NEW ENGLAND AND NEW YORK STATE
New Haven, CT 1891 4TO 
XXVII,1180pp. The bad news is the book is only fair - covers loosening (likely loose by the time you get it), a few page edges frayed. The good news is the superabundant multi-fluity of graphics in the ads. Over 230 pages of ads in back and a generosity of infiltrators amongst the text. One could likely strip the ads, sleeve them, and sell for so much per each leaf. But then what about our obligation to preserve ? You buy - you decide. Copies fofr this year not on line for this year (5237160306)
