Book Condition: VG+


Two volumes, uniformly bound as large format booklets, red wraps, title panels mounted on upper front covers, cord bindings. Approx. 14 1/2" x 11 1/2". Both volumes show minor fading to covers, a few slight (1/4") closed tears along edges. 8 + [4] pp. What are identified on the front cover of the primary volume as "Biographical Notes" are actually (and correctly stated on main title as) "Bibliographical Notes on certain of the Earliest Editions"; this volume provides information on the early editions (through 1873) of Harte's comedic classic. The prospectus announces publication and contains one illustrated plate. Harte's poem, published separately, is not included here. Very scarce.
