In Reply to: Longfellow - Evangeline posted by Kathy on April 21, 19100 at 04:45:06:
I have a copy too ,that is very old with a old paper and looks to be ink written. is it Evangeline and other poems? that is the name of mine. if u have any info on it let me knoe ,please thank you ..
: I have a very old copy of Longfellows Evangeline. The paper appears hand pressed and the words appear to be printed with a "cruel" printing technique - it appears to be ink and not type. There is not a published date that I can see - though I know that it was published in 1847.
: The outside of the book is leater - and unfortunetly damaged by a fire (albeit not extensivsly). There is a pen and ink drawing of Longfellow on the inside cover and what appears to be a signature written ON THE PAGE in what appears to be ink.
: I am wondering the value of this book. It does not appear to have been circulated and was given to me by a great grandmother of a friend who told me that she had gotten the book from her grandfather!!
: Any info?? Please email me at email@example.com
