Volumes 69 & 70 had been bound for the Wadsworth Library in Geneseo NY. Both have tight binding with age wear to cloth covered boards. Vol 70 has a cracked spine at the beginning (see picture), but pages holding tight. Each volume contains 6 months of The American Review of Reviews edited by Albert Shaw. Contents is included for each month. Volumes contain articles about current events, world politics, political cartoons, etc. Volume 69 has 672 pages and Volume 70 has 672 pages. They measure approximately 9 1/2" tall and 7" deep and take up 2 1/2" of shelf space together. These are in good condition. Volume 69 has a few issues: the first few pages that include an index have a corner torn out on several pages and a creased page (see pictures). Other than that, I didn't notice any tears, creases or marks, but considering age there might be some. Normal library markings. Fascinating stories. See pictures as we consider them part of the description.
