Philadelphia: Jas. B. Smith, 1859. Early printing. Hardcover. Fair.
1859, an early printing, but not a first (originally published about a decade prior). Hardcover, 8vo., original blue cloth with gilt title and decoration. 112 pp. Each page with a unique ornamental border, plus in-text illustrations. Fair. Front board detached, but present; text-block split into two pieces (title page - page 80, and page 81 - the end); spine cloth detached, but now in two pieces and does come laid-in; light foxing throughout. A really attractive vintage kids book, here in need of repair. Despite all of the wear, all original pages (including the endpapers) are present.
