1899 "The Famous Men & Great Events of the 19th Century"


Shipping to United States: $6.00

This is a really big hardback book and as interesting as it is big. Published in 1899, it was written by Charles Morris and is "embellished with nearly 100 full page half tone engravings...". It encompasses important battles and the soldiers who fought them, rise and fall of nations, changes in world maps, social and political revolutions, discoveries, explorers, inventors, science and art, religious progress and more.

It has 646 pages and is 9.75 x 7.25 x 1.75". The spine has loosened some, the edges are worn, and the page edges are dirty looking. The pages are somewhat yellowed but still soft, not brittle. There is no writing inside. I would say it is in good antique condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
