      Can you post a photo of the spine and one of an inside page? Any illustrations? To me it looks like one I have seen that came as a series.

      Wish it had the first couple of pages, book only starts "have a merry Christmas and happy new year dated Dec 25th 1881", as a Christmas present. Book is by Daniel De Foe illustrations by J.D. Watson, George Routledge and Sons London : Broadway, Ludgate Hill New York : 416 Broome Street, This illustration on the spine Looks like De Foe standing with a walking stick in one hand and a makeshift umbrella in the other. Sorry I have no other pics at this time, but hope this helps some what. Thanks

      other than the copyright info gone book has 99% of its pages
    5. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 11 years ago
      This was part of a Excelsior series by George Routledge and Sons in 1818. Dave

      As mentioned in my previous posting, I thought this was from a series. Dave where did you confirm it's from the 1818 series you mentioned?
    7. landkyle024 landkyle024, 11 years ago
      yes do tell, also have one other book about to post as a mystery book as well

      SMD, I knew you were right that why I searched for series! LOL

      Ok, that makes sense then! That's the one I was thinking of, Excelsior 1881.
