Front: “FRIENDSHIP” above clasped hands with pair of leaves. Below, “MISS DENIA McELROY. Images and letters slightly raised and highly polished against matte ground.
Rear: “W H McKINELY” [sic] above profile of McKinley. Below, “SHOT SEPT 6th/DIED SEPT 14th 1901”.
Spine: “SOUVENIR”. Letters polished against matte ground.
Foredge: Flat, roughed, with covers flush.
Definitely by the same carver as the other McKinley books, but this one has “Souvenir” and a name inscribed. Could this be a 1901 Fair souvenir?
