1908 Augustus Saint-Gaudens book by Lewis Hind

Interesting find at my town dump recently. Sitting in our free book section was this 1908 book on Augustus Saint-Gaudens by Lewis Hind. The text is organized in four sections: His Life ( A chronology); An Essay; His Works (A chronology, and an early attempt at a catalogue raisonne); Photographic reproductions. I would have never looked for this book so a lucky find for me. It is a nice addition to my coin library and an interesting read. I don't usually find coin related books there but occasional rare books including a first edition of Salem's Lot with the dust jacket. The things people just toss away astounds me sometimes. A few photos of his coin related work.
