Book, 1863, Oliver Optic Try Again Juvenile Boys Fiction HB Antique

Details

148 year old Antique Book; Try Again or The Trials and Triumphs of Harry West: A Story for Young Folks

Wonderful Civil War era printing of the juvenile story of a paper boy made good.

"The story of Harry West is a record of youthful experience, designed to illustrate the necessity and the results of perseverence in well doing. The true success in life is the attainment of a pure and exalted character; and he who, at threescore and ten, has won nothing but wealth and a name, has failed to achieve the noblest purpose of his being. Wealth is success; a true life is a far nobler success. He who has won both as been doubly succesful; but he who has become rich by neglecting the mind, the heart, and the soul, has sacrificed the greater good to the less." - Preface.

Written by Oliver Optic, (pseudonym of William Taylor Adams), this book is part of a Juvenile Boys' Series.

Published: 1863 (c) 1857 Boston: Lee and Shepard.

Description: Hardcover. 281 + 6 advertising pages. Early printing.

Average condition with hardcover spine removed although spine is still intact. Foxing, frayed hardcover, light soiling but a solid hardcover.

A really unique gift for a young boy or the book collector.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I have THOUSANDS of items such as jewelry, art, books, glassware, and various antiques and collectibles to add to the store (no kidding) so please do add Vintage Treasures Found as a favorite bookmark and check back often.

Recently, I've also included a Sewing and Embroidery category with beautiful high quality handmade items. These items are made by someone who has been sewing nearly 40 years and has a passion and true talent. These items are truly a delight!

I'm also working on including some edibles in the store, such as homemade bread, bread mix, spices, and preserved food. These are a fabulous treat to yourself for an every day treat or special occasion as well as a unique and special gift.

I sell items of a caliber I myself would expect to purchase and ship them as professionally possible to ensure they safely reach their new home. Item descriptions are based on researched, educated estimates.

I check in daily and regularly and respond quickly so don't hesitate to let me know if I can help you in any way. I ship within one to two business days of a purchase so please know that you can receive your items quickly and I can accommodate other shipping options upon request. In the US, delivery confirmation is included in shipping cost. I package all items with the utmost of care, but out of respect for our planet, I may use recycled packaging materials.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.

What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
