New York: Cassell Publishing Company, 1890.
Pictorial Boards. A nice copy of one the notoriously fragile late 19th century children’s books in pictorial boards. There is some cracking to the spine, but it is essentially all present. The boards are bright, with the usual corner wear and rubbing to the extremities. Front hinge has been reinforced with japanese tissue. Glue residue (from what we’re not sure) on the pastedowns, and a child’s name on the endpaper, dated in 1897. Mylar has been cut to protect the binding.
Very Good binding.
