|Limited Edition Hardcover
A very limited number of Glensheen: The Official Guide to Duluth’s History Congdon Estate are available in a special hardcover edition. This unique volume contains the same elegant interior pages as the softcover edition encased in a hardcover wrapped in “Congdon Green” cloth with title foil-stamped in gold leaf as well as printed endsheets in a design featuring the Lion, Tutor Rose, and Pineapple motifs found throughout Glensheen’s architecture and furnishings, all protected by a full-color dustjacket that replicates the softcover. Only 700 of these books were printed, and currently fewer than 250 copies remain available to the public. This book retails for $44.95 and is available here for $40 plus shipping.
