About this Item

This book has been rebacked, incorporating the original backstrip. The original backstrip was lacking about 1/2 inch on each end, and the rebinder has filled-in the ends with a blue cloth. The original spine is very rubbed, and it is just possible to make out a very faded 'Hans". In addition to the original endpapers, the binder has added extra endpapers. The inner covers and endpapers are a yellow paper, my not being sure if these are original or are newer. 347 clean, crisp, and tightly bound pages, followed by 4 pages of publisher's advertising. The first 5 preliminary leaves, including the title page, have a small loss to the upper corner. There are no ownership inscfriptions or bookplates. There is a little cracking to the inner hinges but the covers are well attached, with rubbing to the covers' corners. The covers are a dark maroon, pebbled cloth, with the publisher's gilt emblem in the center of each cover, an O K in a circle, for James O'Kane publishers. The title page has the 1866 date, with a copyright date of 1865. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 15425
