The date appears to be 1876 to 1899 the date is unreadable, but its 18 something. The condition isn't the best shape but still able to turn the pages. I need help with determining the next step with this item.

    Jmurrellgfd,
    Saalfield Publishing
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Saalfield Publishing Company published children's books and other products from 1900 to 1977. It was once one of the largest publishers of children's materials in the world.
    The company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio, by Arthur J. Saalfield who had come to take charge of the Werner Company's publishing department. During its flourishing, the company published the works of authors including Louisa May Alcott, Horatio Alger, P. T. Barnum, Daniel Defoe, Colonel George Durston, Laura Lee Hope, Herman Melville, Dr. Seuss, Anna Sewell, Shirley Temple, Johanna Spyri, Mark Twain, Johann Rudolf Wyss, and Robert Sidney Bowen.
    Saalfield published the New Americanized Encyclopædia Britannica in 1903, and was sued for copyright violation.
    The company also published educational toys and games, including the game Blockhead!.
    A page from Ethel Hays's version of Peter Rabbit © Saalfield Publishing Company.
    Among the artists employed by Saalfield was noted illustrator Ethel Hays. She worked on a variety of the company's juvenile titles, including Peter Rabbit, The Night Before Christmas, and The Little Red Hen. Her most notable work came after Saalfield had secured the license from the Johnny Gruelle Company in 1944 to produce Raggedy Anne and Andy material. Storybooks, coloring books, and paper doll [1] booklets soon followed. Most of the artwork fell to Hays, "whose exuberant, curvilinear style perfectly captured the whimsy and energy of Gruelle's characters." [2]
    In April 1977 Saalfield Publishing Company shut down, and its library and archives were purchased by Kent State University.
