Benson, Walter Prichard Eaton, Richard La Gallienne, Samuel M Crothers, Joseph Conrad, Woodrow Wilson and Hendrik van Loon. Title page missing. (I can include a copy from another book just for interest's sake if requested). Many markings on the CONTENTS page. Ink on page 3. Pencil on page 21. Underlining in "MONEY". Residue from tape repair on page 90 that must have occurred previous to the library binding.

Not bad for a 100-year-old book. Our listing number 48029.
