The Book of Friendship by Reginald Wright Kauffman 1909
The Book of Friendship: A Little Manual of Companionship by Reginald Wright Kauffman, published in 1909 by Henry Altemus Company, Philadelphia, is a collection of thoughtful quotations on friendship, written by a variety of writers and philosophers and a wide range of sources.
The tattered soft suede cover, in a natural shade of tan, looks and feels like deerskin and has the title embossed in gold on the front.
A lovely gift for a friend who treasures antiquarian books, this rare copy of Kauffman's work is a highly collectible find.
