Brown cloth, decorated in blind, lettered in gilt. All corners show mild exposure, with bottom front corner starting to layer. Chipped spine extremities show mild loss, otherwise only modest shelf wear. vii,206 pp., with family tree chart opposite p. 1, b&w plates, folding family chart at p. 161, including a large family gathering photographic plate opposite p. 93. A few minor internal soil marks, generally clean and intact, with firm binding. Both front and rear pastedowns have slightly discolored as a result of the glue used to affix them to the boards. On pp. 188-189 is a biographical sketch of the Hon. Edward Dickinson (1803-1874), the father of Emily Dickinson, whose poetical works were, at the time of publication, still shrouded in obscurity -- though as she was still living at the time, it is conceivable that despite her reclusiveness, she attended this reunion and, some earnest researchers have contended, she may be among the assembled in the collective family portrait. Laid in at rear is a one-page miniature advertising broadside from Charles M. Dickinson, dated 4 Aug. 1884 and headed "Editorial Rooms, Daily and Weekly Republican," issued with this volume and explaining the delay in publication. Exceptionally scarce.
