New York: Clark & Maynard, Publishers, 1874. Hardbound. Publishers rust cloth with beveled edges, gilt design embossed in center of cover, gilt title on spine. Frontispiece steel engraving, 26 other steel engravings or line engravings with tissue-guards. 248 pp. Poor. First and last few pages loose and very chipped. Cover attached to spine, but inner hinges broken front and back, text block loose. All pages are present, and this book could be restored. Ephemeral material tucked into it, and some pencil notations were noted inside. Not too pretty to look at, but complete. Item #137969
Normally, I do not offer books in this condition, yet this tome being of the utmost rarity, I put it before the public for I know there is one individual to whom the ownership of this book would mean a great deal. The book is exceedingly rare and available only as a poor quality re-print POD edition. This is the real McCoy right here, and worthy of being restored. No other copies known to have been sold, thus a real trophy for anyone related to the author.
