This is one of 2 John Fox Jr. (1862-1919) I have. This 1908 one, "Trail of the Lonesome Pine" was rescued some time ago from the Free Public Library in Newark, N.J. Mr. Fox, being from Kentucky, often wrote about Kentucky and this book is one of those. It was also a best seller.
It is 7.5 x 5" and has 411 pages. Unfortunately, it has been marked up, but only on the inside front and back covers. The front has 2 pencil drawings of women and the library stamp and the back has some writing in pencil, the library stamp, a stamp "Jul 1937". The pages are really yellow but not brittle. And it has what looks like oil marks throughout. The spine is in good condition and the edges of the hard back, cloth covered cover is just worn around the edges with some stains on the front. Please look at pics carefully.
Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 3 business days of receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 3 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.
I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING. That adds to the cost of shipping .
Just contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 7 days of delivery

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
I am a fair and reasonable person. If something is damaged due to shipping, I will refund your money or allow you to exchange. If you don't like the item or it's not what you thought, you can send it back for refund or exchange but you will need to pay the shipping cost back to me. My vintage items are sold "as is". Please look at the pictures & descriptions carefully as I will not allow a return if the item is not acceptable for something I described as a flaw or issue.
