About this Item

First book form edition: Originally published in Harper's Weekly, this little verse chides the high society ladies of New York for their slavish devotion to fashion and their selfish extravagance. The popular piece inspired a host of imitations and sequels; it is here illustrated with a frontispiece and seven other plates by A. Hoppin. 12mo. 68 pp.; 8 plts. (included in pagination). BAL 2228. Publisher's blind-stamped cloth, much faded and somewhat worn, front cover with gilt-stamped title and publisher's monogram. Preliminary advertising leaf between front pastedown and free endpaper has been removed. Pages with a very few light spots, generally clean. Bookseller Inventory # 4351
