About this Item

Paper covered wood boards, with a very worn illustration on the rear cover. 187 pp, with a frontispiece illustration (same as that on the rear cover). An early American novel with gothic undertones, pirated and popular in the early 19th century. In POOR condition. The front wood board with a horizontal split its width, near the lower edge. Very heavy scuffing, fading, darkening and loss to the paper over the boards. Beige cloth binding present, perhaps contemporary but most likely not original. Moderate edgewear, with the corners rounded and some loss of wood at the lower front edge. Binding cracked and beginning to separate in the middle and rear cover. Text solid and intact with scattered foxing and soiling throughout. Some minor tears to the first endpapers. Faint ownership signature at the rear endpaper. (Wright 1900).
