New York: James Pott, 1885. First edition. Hardcover. Ex-Library.
1885, First Edition. Hardcover, original boards rebacked with cloth tape. 359 pp., tissue-covered engraved frontispiece. Ex-Library: notes on spine; bookplates on front pastedown; ink stamp on first page of text. Text-block is completely LOOSE from the covers and the first 5 pages are detached from the text-block. Despite these flaws, the text itself is in surprisingly nice condition; bright and bold. Bookplate notes that this was donated by Dorothy Wyeth Chandler, the wife of Tennessee Congressman Walter 'Clift' Chandler. A perfect candidate for rebinding. Rare!
