Green cloth boards form the cover, the corners are slightly bumped, it's shelf-cocked and there's a few small marks but given it's age it's in pretty good condition. The back endpapers are slightly foxed, but the front endpapers and the bulk of the book are in great condition. There's a sticker on the inside of the front cover; the book was given to someone for attending Sunday School in 1921.
"And truly the reckless driver did "go" just at that moment. He came up to the corner of the new fence, where the road took a rather abrupt turn, in a style that insured a capsize. In another second the spirited horse turned sharp round, the sleigh turned sharp over, and the occupant was pitched out at full length, while a black object, that might have been mistaken for his hat, rose from his side like a rocket, and, flying over him, landed on the snow several yards beyond. A faint shout was heard to float on the breeze as this catastrophe occurred, and the driver was seen to jump up and readjust himself in the cariole; while the other black object proved itself not to be a hat, by getting hastily up on a pair of legs, and scrambling back to the seat from which it had been so unceremoniously ejected."
