Aside from wraps, the booklet is secure. ; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 33 pages; This booklet seems to have been written for the Liberty Bell display in Philadelphia. This particular printing , however, was done for the South Carolina Inter-State and West indian Exposition held in Charleston in 1901-02. The Liberty bell was part of this Exposition and a grand journey was made from Philadelphia to Charleston. The Mayor of Philadelphia and many cty officials accompanied the Bell on the trip. The first few pages of the booklet commemorate this trip. The main part of the booklet, by Keyser, is the history of the Bell with many photos. Interesting souvenir of a little-known Expo.
