The Soul of Pierre is a novel translated from French into English by Mary J. Serrano. There are 62 interesting illustrations in the work. The binding is sewn and there is gold on the tops of the page-edges. The paper appears to be of good quality as it is un-yellowed still. The cover and the illustrations are perhaps the most attractive part of the book, but there is also an interesting inscription. It reads: “Henry and Nell / from / George X Wittmar (?) / Christmas / 1890.” “85-2878g” also appears twice throughout the book. There is a pasted-in dedication of the book that reads “Henry Buhl Library / Grove City College / Grove City, PA / In Memory of / Alexander R. Burnett, ’74 / Presented by / Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Burnett.”
