Vintage Book.. Little Leather Library... CHRIST IN FLANDERS By Balzac
This little leather miniaturized book has an embossed green leather cover. It was published by LITTLE LEATHER CORPORATION, NEW YORK. This is a Redcroft Edition. These little leather books were originally designed for WWI Soldiers because they could easily be carried by the troops and fit into a shirt pocket. Later these miniaturized books were sold through mail order or at drug store counters during the 1920’s. They were very popular because of their small easy to carry rectangular 3” x 4” x ¼” thick approximate size.. The front cover of this book reads '"CHRIST IN FLANDERS... BALZAC”. The back cover center has a large “L” that is the beginning letter for “LITTLE LEATHER LIBRARY”. This book is in good vintage condition with some pages being yellowed or worn and some scuffs and minor chips to the edges of the leather binding. There is some paint on the bottom edge of the leather binding that was most likely from placing on a shelf before fresh paint was completely dry. The print block is tight but the glue that holds the block to the leather binding has come loose and the block will slip out of its leather binding in one piece. It appears that it could easily be reglued There are no missing pages and all pages are very readable.
