The Book of Golden Deeds of All Times and All Lands . Gathered and Narrated by Charlotte Yonge. Published by The Christian Herald, Bible House, NY, in 1895. Appears to be a first edition. This is a small hardcover, measuring 6 by 4 inches and containing 314 pages. No writing, marks or underlines. The pages are age-tanned, but no foxing is present. Pages are well attached. The binding and all hinges are tight. The spine is straight and uncreased. The cover is red cloth over boards with a gilt design and lettering on the front and spine. The gilting has faded and the cover is dirty, as would be expected in a book this age. Corners are bumped. This is a nice little antiquarian book, fairly scarce. It contains 30 stories of courage and self-sacrifice.
