Boston: James R. Osgood and Company (1875)

First Edition / First Printing


When the original printing plates were made, the copyright date was set as “1876”. This was a mistake and the printer cut out the “6” and a smaller “5” inserted in its place. You’ll note the smaller “5” on the end of the 1875 copyright date.

Sun fading to spine and rubbing over T in title The . Wear and denting to cloth at top and bottom of the spine. White scuff mark in the midde of the back cover. The binding is very good. BAL 12170
