FAIR condition, the covers have some rubs and scrapes, especially along the edges, but are solid and doing their job well; the top page edges (page edges of the closed book) have darkened; internally, there is a vertical crease down the middle of the issues from handling; the binding is split at a number of places where the book was over-opened, but the pages are holding; the pages are lightly toned with age and there is some foxing here and there; deaccessioned from the "Mennonite Historical Library, Harleysville, Pennsylvania", as stamped on the front and rear free endpapers, and the bottom margin of the first issue, (there is also the handwritten word "dup." at the top of the front free endpaper, denoting this copy as a duplicate); there is an early previous owner's signature at the top of the front free endpaper; otherwise the issues are complete, bright, clean, and unmarked.
This bound collection of 24 complete issues from 1903-1904, printed in the German Fraktur of the Mennonites / Anabaptists. A rare and historic look at Bethel College, Kansas.
