By Christian K. Ross. "[C]ontaining a Full and Complete Account of the Abduction of Charles Brewster Ross" and his brother. Copyright 1876, so evidently this is a first edition of this account of a very famous case (which reached a conclusion, of sorts, not far from where I'm typing this).
See the pics for more information, but this hardcover looks its age: shelfwear, including advanced rubbing/a gnawed look to the bottom of the spine; toning and foxing, especially at page joins; a few weak pages and places with visible spine inside; a handful of stains and smudges. But for all that, it sits reasonably straight, has that old-time design (and a faint smell of pipe smoke), and is perfectly readable if even some care is taken. (If you'd like a pair of archival gloves to accompany your purchase, leave me a note at checkout!)
