This Rhett and Scarlett puzzle is in excellent condition, BUT, owner told us there are 2 pieces missing. The previous collector placed small pieces of tape on the bottom of the box. The pieces are in sandwich bags to ensure that no pieces fell out and they would stay in excellent condition. The box is in good condition with wear around the corners. Measures 34 inches x 42 1/2 inches, with interlocking pieces when put together. Sold As-Is. Still very collectible. The box is large and will probably cost a bit more to ship that the item itself, but this is a worthy collectible! Have no idea what those reflections are on the back of the box photograph.

Altar Music A Novel by Christin Lore Weber This achingly beautiful and revelatory first novel is the story of three generations of strong-willed women and their battles to balance personal longings with the disciplines of their church: Meghan, who dismisses the priest's injunctions about sex until tragedy befalls her family; Kate, who so fears God's power to destroy that she shuts herself off from emotion completely; and, finally, Elise, whose connection to unknowable forces drives her into the most exhilarating, disillusioning, and haunting experience of her life. Written with lyricism and emotional authenticity, Altar Music is a portrait of a nun as a young girl, an epic tale of a family both defined and divided by its religious beliefs, and a powerful story about mothers and daughters.

GREAT CONDITION this wonderful gray clothbound book is. It is 100 YEARS OLD and looks ~New! Copyright, 1909 FREDERIC VAN RENSSELAER DEY, (Author of THE MAGIC STORY). With a frontispiece in color by FRANK P. FAIRBANKS. Publishers: GROSSET but when the adventure occurred, a little more than seven years afterward, telling the store became irresistible. (The adventure of 1895, consisted in coming upon the crused and broken body of a man who had wandered over the face of a cliff into a deep canyon. He was breathing when we found him;he lived some hours afterward; he died as he and lived~a mystery. The guide of our party recognized him as the principal man of the tale I had heard told in 1887. The man made his first appearance in Mexico city during summer of 1885.He had conducted himself strangely, and had forgotten his identity.He wandered from town to town. For a time he disappeared, but in November, 1886 he came back to Mexico city, and soon he sailed for England on a ship from Vera Cruz. Before he sailed away he confided to three different men the tale that his memory had been restored; that he was an English peer; that he had been attacked and beaten, on his wedding day; that he had utterly forgotten his own identity since then,until a few months before he sailed to England. He was then returning to claim his heritage and his bride.Three months later, in February, 1887,he reappeared in Mexico and returned to the mountains of Guerrero.To one of the men he confided in, he related that he must have been deceived in his belief in the recovery of his memory;that upon returning to England he discovered that the man he supposed himself to be,had never left that country; that Lord and Lady X,were living happily together;and he, therefore, had no idea who he really was. He explained that the likeness between Lord X and himself was most striking.He declared his purpose to be to return to the mountains, and to die among them, unknown.That is the bare story.Some alterations and changes have been made in this edition,but the one part of my story that is entirely authentic, is the name of its hero: JOHN ASHTON.That was the name by which they mysterious man of the mountains was known. Then: signed by author, dated June 4, 1909. Super interesting tale. A man of mystery. Good-luck. Super LOW RESERVE!!
