The Signs in the Christmas Fire
1908 - HB by William Allen Knight
This is a moving Christmas story - a Christian treasure.
book has a paper cover over boards for the binding and the paper cover
is very worn at the spine as I've shown in one of the photos. The paper
has yellowed with age. There are a couple of labels removed inside the
front cover and the facing page - still has a label that appears to be
from a book store with a price and code number (this is in the upper
right corner of the first blank page).
the next page, I can see the threads from the binding between the two
pages that have split but is still tight. The right page at this point
shows only the book title but a name and Christmas '08 is written in
black ink plus it has the same label with code number (no price) on the
top right corner. Turning the page, there are 2 blank pages in good
condition. Turning the page again, there is a black and white print on
the left (artist's rendition of the manger in the cave). This print has a
thin (onion skin?) sheet protecting it; the right side shows the title,
author, publisher, date (MCMVIII), etc. Turning the page again and the
left side shows the copyright date is 1907 (MCMVII) - there are a few
numbers and initials printed on the side both pencil and ink. The right
side at this point is the author's dedication. Turning the page, the
left side is the Prologue and the story begins on the right side.
