Here is a beautiful copy of The Prince of Peace by William Jennings Bryan, published by Reilly & Britton in 1909. The softcover booklet still has its original box, as well as a glassine dust jacket similar to that used in the boxed gift books R&B published in the same year that were illustrated by John R Neill. This is an anti-evolution piece by orator Bryan. 32 pages with nice endpapers and page ornaments. Scarce, only one other copy found online for $200.

The box is in poor condition, with flattened flaps (missing a couple) and some water staining at the top. The book is in excellent condition, with a couple small marginal stains and one leaf with a larger stain as shown. No marks or tears, and the jacket is in pretty nice condition also with minor wear.
