This copy of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's POEMS from The Franklin Library is still wrapped in its original cellophane and cardboard packaging. Book was evidently received and then set aside. The wrapping has surely protected the book from age, dust, and humidity so this book should be in perfect condition.Book is bound in dark chocolate brown leather & a brown satin ribbon bookmark is visible through the cellophane. Lettering on cover is 22 karat gold gilding. Page edges are gold gilded.
