Up for sale is a rare hardcover 1903 State of New Jersey Legislative Manual. The author is T. F. Fitzgerald and this book has 548 pages.
The only condition issues I see are:
a) There's a rip in the paper immediately behind the front cover, next to the "Compliments of" handwritten inscription (see picture).
b) The top corner of the front cover has frayed a little (see picture).
c) There's a black dot on the bottom of the book (see picture) - saturation appears to be limited to this small area on the bottom of the book.
d) There's a slight rip on the corner of the binding (lower rear portion - see picture). This would appear in the upper-right hand corner of "1903" on the side of the book.
Handwritten on the inside cover is: "Compliments of A. C. Heulings" (Albert C. Heulings perhaps?). Albert C. Heulings is listed elsewhere, via a Google internet search as:
a) Clerk to Committee on Judiciary of General Assembly, session 1902.
b) Mr. Heulings appears to have been a Camden, NJ attorney with an office at 415 Market Street at the time.
c) His family owned the historic "Albert C Heulings House" in Moorestown, NJ., built in 1870.
d) This Mr. Heulings lived between 1878-1937.
The pages appear to be in excellent condition for a book that's 111 years old with no handwriting, rips or bent pages. Due to the limited number of pictures allowed I devoted the last four pictures to this book's minor flaws.
My asking price is $20.00 (cash) which is firm. Please arrive with exact amout in-hand, since I may be unable to make change.
