New York City: Harper & Brothers, 1887. Hardcover. Very Good. Item #009137
16mo., (2)170pp. plus 12pg ads. Sharp Early US Edition. Published a year earlier as #105 of Harper's Handy Series. Originally published in the UK, also in 1886, as part of that year's Arrowsmith's Christmas Annual. This volume is likely a Harper's Popular Library Edition. Bound in publisher's 3/4 brown cloth over marbled paper-covered boards. Titles in red on spine. Square, tight and clean throughout with just a touch of toning to page edges. Some rubbing to spine ends, edges and tips. A couple of nicks in paper covered boards. Ownership stamp on front end-paper. Small Brentano's Bros Bookseller ticket on the bottom of the front paste-down. Still a quite handsome collectable copy and quite scarce in any condition with no other copies currently in the market.
