Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1873. Very Good -. Item #29274

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1873. First Edition. Small octavo; publisher's terracotta cloth stamped in black, gilt spine titling, brown glazed endpapers; 162,[6](ads)pp.; frontispiece, text illus. throughout. Cloth rather scuffed at margins, spine significantly darkened with small loss at spine crown, title page rather finger-soiled, scattered foxing throughout, else a Good to Very Good copy overall.

Unaccountably scarce storybook for children, this copy enhanced by a contemporary owner's hand-coloring of the title page and two text illustrations with pastels. The frontispiece is especially reminiscent of a Degas drawing.

Price: $250.00
