I was given the book by a relative that was ready to dispose of it. The book is signed by Julia F. Paine dated 1891 and was also published by George, Routledge and Sons, Limited. This book is also in somewhat good condition for its age. I wonder how may books are out there and what the value would be. Would anyone know?
